There has not been much discussion about the lottery, which is tonight, and rightfully so, since the Knicks do not have their pick (thanks Isiah). But there are some potential repercussions for the Knicks future as the winner is probably going to draft John Wall.
Who do you want to win the lottery tonight? Who do you NOT want to win the lottery tonight?
I want the T-Wolves to win. If they win, they might be more willing to trade Rubio.
Golden State wouldn't be bad either. If they win, they might be willing to trade Curry (or somebody else) if we take one of their bad contracts (e.g. Biedrens or Maggete).
New Orleans only has a 0.8% chance but would be the best for the Knicks. Chris Paul or Darren Collison could be traded.
I definitely don't want to see the Nets win the lottery. And they have the best chance at 25%. Although they might be willing to trade Harris if they win, I doubt they would trade him to the Knicks and defintely not trade him during free agency. They would want to hamper the Knicks chances of signing Lebron the best they can. And having Wall would be another attractive asset for the Nets to sign free agents.
I don't want the Jazz to win either. That would be difficult to accept since it is our pick.
