In the NO Podcast Episode 180: NBA Lottery Balls!

Published: May 18, 2014

The NBA Draft Lottery is right around the corner! With a 4% chance of keeping the pick, Michael and I take this last chance to dream about what would happen if the team did land a top-3 pick. Would we prefer to trade it? For whom? Does it matter if it’s the first, second or third pick? We also talk Tyreke Evans surgery, Eric Gordon, and going back and watching the team when it had it’s finishing five/core four.

I can't even say I'd trade the first pick for Drummond.

I'd rather have Wiggins because I feel like he'd fit much better with the core 4 and has a higher ceiling. 

A finishing 5 with Drummond would not allow us to utilize our best players at the end of games since we can't have both Anderson and Drummond on the court with Davis, especially with Drummond's abysmal free throw percentage and our inability in that scenario to guard smaller, more athletic lineups.

Wiggins would much better fit in with our core 4 in my opinion.


If I could miraculously draft anyone in 2014, it'd be Wiggins.
