In any event, I think Ewing has put a nice staff together and would be surprised if they will don’t get back on track in a few years.

That is what I gave him credit for once his staff was finally in place. I thought he brought in a sound group.

Villanova's Omari Spellman will enter the NBA Draft, but won't hire an agent.

Not directed at you but don't understand the fascination of the designation of a lottery pick. All the lottery is for is to determine the draft order of non playoff teams. Difference between 14 and 15 no difference than any other 1 position difference. Not to mention lottery pick had more significance when there was only 7 teams in the lottery. That said I have no idea where he would be picked but a big with an NBA body, shooting range out to 3 and a good rebounder should be pretty coveted.

contracts are bigger and the teams invest time and effort trying to get position in those picks they also have trade value.

When you look at something (someone) as a major investment you take it more seriously and put more effort into it. A guy who was lottery and has a poor first year will likely get a couple more seasons to prove himself. A late 1st rounder and beyond not proving himself is quickly old news and the BBD is coming up again in June.

At this point, if you are a Northeast kid and get the offer from Villanova, I don't know how you turn it down. Hopefully they stay away from our targets.
