Winners and Losers at the NBA Draft

Clearly, the Pelicans won because they got Zion, a generational player. A closer analysis shows New Orleans picked up a whole new roster of young talent by trading Anthony Davis to the Lakers. The Hawks and Grizzlies did well, the Suns disappointed and the Knicks got their man (but will it make a difference?). The Warriors took a guy out of Yale (perhaps he could help with the analytics when free agency begins), but then immediately traded him to Utah. It was a fun night.
