I accept. Step one in any tank job is to own all of your own first round picks. With this deal I get my pick back for next season and a total of 3 1sts and 3 2nds plus Kabengele who I think is a decent prospect. I think Toronto is getting a pretty good deal here to be honest, but since being bad is kind of the point, I'm not too worried about it. I didn't want to trade for some elite prospects and take a shortcut in rebuilding, it will be more fun to go right to the bottom and build it back up. Considering that, another potential benefit to this deal and the Harden trade is eliminating two potential tanking competitors in the Heat and Raptors.

Tom Izzo: I'm just being salty. It's my team. With Terrence Ross and Ilyasova as well. Just salty because I truly do think in real life we would be a top 3 NBA team and should be a serious D5 contender, but struggled in the sim and lost in the first round

Reggie Miller: Izzo, is that a hypothetical NBA lineup or a could-be D5 roster?

Josh Barber: that team seems decent but not sure how they would handle something like Joe Ingles playing point guard

Alex English: Doesn't sound great to me. First round playoff exit probably.

Tom Izzo: Imagine a team with Kemba Walker, CJ McCollum, Giannis, Steven Adams, with Austin Rivers, Ben McLemore, Andre Roberson on the bench. Damn. Just imagine
