Today’s Tankathon Sim

In this scenario, the Cavs miss out on the top three players but can still land one of the better players in this year’s class. Chicago would likely take LaMelo Ball, the Timberwolves select Anthony Edwards, and the Warriors go with James Wiseman. After that, the Cavaliers would go with the best available wing prospect and choose between Isaac Okoro, Deni Avdija, and Devin Vassell. To remain consistent, the Cavs go with Vassell who best compliments the team’s ambitions.
