Best ROI is the Mavs winning it all
Not sure what you mean? Wizards get the better of the Clippers or OKC pick in this draft from the Gafford trade.

Maybe Burns as an undrafted free agent. I don’t believe he will be drafted.
I would like Filipkowski as their second first round pick.  Good outside and has some skills inside also. Not sure his defense will hold up?

Filiposwki is a lottery pick

Betting.  They have been the best team in the NBA post trade deadline.   If healthy, they are a legit threat to win it all

Well if they had Jalen Brunson instead of Kyrie I might.

Wow. I am so impressed they beat Houston. At least it looks they will avoid the play in.

Looks like we will end up with the second most ping pong balls.  No consensus among the experts on who the top guys are.  I would take Dillingham.  And hope he turns into D’Arron Fox. Get Cooper Flagg in 2025.

It looks like foreign players are going to dominate the top of the class. Hopefully our new front office is more competent scouting euros than our last one. Sarr looks he’s turning into the consensus number one, so that’s my hope knowing nothing about any of them. Hopefully whoever we take doesn’t blossom until year two

Wizards should just go ahead and draft Caitlin Clark. They'd sell out every game at least (for a few months).

I saw that in anticipation of Indy drafting Clark #1, other WNBA teams are moving their games against Indy into larger venues. The Las Vegas team is moving their game from their home arena to the T-Mobile Arena.

One second round on Caitlin, one on Bronny. Why not?

They have about a 50 percent chance at a top four. 5 or 6 about as likely.  Probably doesn’t matter much this year.

It's a good year to pick up a solid role player. Unfortunately, they are desperate for a star and a number two option and a number 3 option. Avdija's made enough of a jump that he looks like he could be a solid rotation piece, so there's that.

Would be nice if they could trade Kuzma for something. Maybe next deadline.  He seems like a fourth guy on a contending team and makes a lot of money for that.  But maybe someone will fall in love with him. Would help I think in getting B Cool more playing time.  They need to se what they have in him next year.  Same with Vuckevick.

It's hard to even tell what you have when the team is so flawed. Gafford looks great on the Mavericks now, Rui is better for the Lakers than he ever was here.

Kuzma just opened a restaurant in Gainesville VA, he's not going anywhere. :)

Someone can run it for him!  Does anyone in Gainesville know who the heck he is?

He apparently asked not to be traded at the deadline. He's fine getting paid to play for a loser
