will visit Tucson (uni of Arizona) the first week of August. Currently, Bagley is visiting Duke and then will head west.

I can't imagine he would be doing all this if his intention wasn't to reclassify. Obviously huge for us. Even if we don't get Bagley it virtually assures of one of Bagley, Porter, Doncic, Ayton, or Bamba.

Good news for the draft. Duke helped Derryck Thornton reclassify in 2015.

That reclassification didn't work for anyone.  Thornton wasn't ready for college, couldn't get on the court, and had to transfer and sit out a year.  I'd hope that doesn't repeat itself with Bagley.

So the Nets are definitely one of the three worst teams in the NBA?

Also: one guy who isn't mentioned as an elite prospect in next year's draft is Trevon Duval.  He has Kyrie Irving handles and Derrick Rose athleticism.  He can't shoot at all and based on reading scouting reports, is a bad decision maker.

I think the Nets are 2nd worst at best. They traded their best player off a league-worst squad. Cant imagine an improvement there.

Derryck Thornton  wasn't even a top 10 recruit. Top 17, 3rd or so best PG.  Bagley is unanimously #1 in both drafts this year and next

I think Chicago will be their main competition for worst team in the league.  CHI's roster is a dumpster fire.

Are the Bulls keeping Wade?

I'm not saying they're of the same quality, but Thornton was still a projected 1-and-done until his basketball career was stalled by reclassifying to come to Duke a year earlier.  At the time, he was ranked about on par with many of the great PG who were drafted last month.  Now, not so much.

Reclassifying doesn't work out well for everyone, and Thornton is the prime example in the last couple years of that.  Bringing him up in the Bagley discussion was not the best way to be optimistic for Bagley -- rather it should remind us that there are perils to the process.

Bulls could still have Wade, Robin Lopez, Portis, Markkenen, Dunn, Holliday. Thats better than what the Nets offer...

I will be surprised if he plays more than 50 games for them.  I could see him being bought out after the trade deadline at the latest.
