    Default Possible NBA Draft Lottery rule changes

    Several NBA sources have confirmed that the 76ers are against a proposal that would balance out the draft lottery as early as next summer.

    General manager Sam Hinkie could not be reached for comment.

    League sources said Wednesday afternoon that the Sixers would not get any sympathy from fellow franchises. That's because for the second straight season, the Sixers are expected to field a roster below NBA standards in order to guarantee losses in hopes of a high draft pick.

    This tactic, said one Eastern Conference executive, is having "a negative effect on the integrity of the NBA." He believes the proposed new format, which could come to a league vote in the fall, would go a long way in preventing teams from duplicating what the Sixers are doing.

    I thought the wheel thing was a good idea until it was pointed out about players matching up their availability with specific teams. It's too much control.

    Has there been any word on what the new rules are? All I know is the 76ers don't like it.
