Or have they quickly given up on Thompson and have Bennett start at the 4, his natural position. Idk, to me, Noel or Len would have been the "safe" pick.
I doubt they gave up Thompson. He was pretty close to a 10-10 player last season. They might be rolling out an old school lineup where they just matchup Bennett/Thompson with whomever the coaching staff sees fit. The only lottery pick that was safe imo was Porter. Everyone else had injury questions or gigantic bust potential
