Espn published its season prediction for the upcoming season a while back. Don't know how many of you checked it out, but anyway check check...
Of course this is not the gospel, and particularly in the East - positions 6-11 - I dont agree with, but its an indication nevertheless how the playoff race will unfold. Naturally, the positions of the Blazers and the Pistons are of interest here. The way I figured, this would get us #12 (from DET) and #13 pick (from POR).
In this scenario, our pick would be #4 - before the lottery, so most likely between #5-#7 after the lottery.
tbh, I wouldnt mind waiting for the POR pick maybe for another season, after LMA ditches Oregon to go to a contender.
Edit: For what it's worth, the predictions were made before the Butler trade. Caron will improve MIL somewhat, just by the fact that he is actually a NBA SF.
