Cleveland Moneyballed the heck out of the draft. That Wentz #2 pick from a year ago has now been turned into 1/1/2/2/3/3/4 round picks. I love Wentz but he’s gonna have to be pretty dang good for that to be a bad exchange.
It honestly feels like this is all just something for us to talk about as we count the days til the playoffs. There’s no real way to regulate rest. As Richard Jefferson said on The Jump yesterday, they can just list a nagging injury and voila, injury rest. And any rules about special protected or prime time games imbalances the best teams’ schedules from bad ones.
