I'm excited for the lottery, the league will probably throw Toronto a bone and give them Cade. 

Hopefully they punish Houston for giving up Harden for scraps

Houston losing their pick would be a tragedy for their fanbase, lol.

It would definitely suck but its not the end of the world.  rockets just need to get a franchise guy in 2022 and 2023 when they have their own picks.

Ran the lottery 10 times, took the 10th result.

BK's 2021 NBA Mock Draft v2.0
First Round
1. Detroit - Cade Cunningham | GF | Oklahoma State
2. Cleveland - Evan Mobley | C | USC
3. Oklahoma City - Jalen Green | GF | G League Ignite
4. Toronto - Jalen Suggs | G | Gonzaga
5. Oklahoma City (via HOU) - Jonathan Kuminga | F | G League Ignite
6. Orlando - Keon Johnson | SG | Tennessee

classic magoc lotto outcome. besides isaac, hampton's my favorite piece going forward on orlando. **** maybe my favorite piece since isaac can't get 20 games on the court without busting his ankle or tearing something. but i wouldn't be mad at keon i guess, even tho it's like **** this is what we do every year. take an energy/high potential dude that just needs a shot that never develops a shot until we give up on him and trade him

Will the exploitation of Gobert's perimeter D make guys like Kai/Isaiah Jackson, who can guard on the perimeter, more sought after?

So would you rather have more proven players with higher floors or more raw players with higher upside? Cuz I think a haul of Keon Johnson, Kai Jones and Brandon Boston Jr is pretty damn good for a rebuilding team.

They still have to be able to bang down low with the bigger guys in the league, but yes. Guys who can protect the rim and then switch on D are invaluable in the league now imo. 
 

They also have to add something other than rim running (ie become a good passer/respectable shooter). Gone are the days where the centers who just attack of Lobs and offer nothing else.

19. New York: Sharife Cooper | PG | Auburn

21. New York: Jalen Johnson | F | Duke 

I wouldn’t hate it. But god idk if we can survive with another lead guard who can’t shoot league average.

This isn't anything new, positionless basketball and having guys that can switch has been extremely important.

Definitely not the end of the world but adding Cade would definitely be huge for you guys.

The Lakers just won a title playing bully ball with two bigs.
