Re: Should NBA Draft have three rounds? Should bad teams get an extra first round pick?
I personally would have 30 picks all in the lottery. Weighted still to the worst teams, and very heavily. But I would give teams 12-18 similar weightings or similar.
Then I would do TWO second round lotteries for the bottom 14 teams, giving them 2 second round picks before the playoff teams pick a second rounder. Then a second round lottery for the top 16 teams. All weighted towards the worst teams playoff teams.
Complicated but its a complicated business getting the league fair.
