In preparation for that climactic announcement, The Athletic did a single Tankathon simulation — Tankathon.com is a website that simulates draft positioning based on records and odds — to set the top 5 picks. After that, our beat writers for those five teams (Mike Vorkunov, Knicks; Chris Kirschner, Hawks; Anthony Slater, Warriors; James L. Edwards III, Pistons; and Kelsey Russo, Cavs) did a mock draft based on the outcome.
Let’s see how this plays out… - CLICK HERE to read full story.
