Rick Carlisle had some serious praise for this current rookie class that had three of its best playing in the same game today with the Lakers' Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma going up against Dennis Smith Jr. "It's a great class," Carlisle said. "Over the next two, three or four years, it will really tell the story of how great. Then, like the '84 class, that took 10, 15 years to see just how great that class was going to be. There were so many Hall of Famers and everything else. This class has the same opportunity to have the same kind of impact. But becoming that kind of great player, a generational, Hall-of-Fame-type player takes more than just being in a good draft. You've got to do a lot of great things and do a lot of things the right way and be guided the right way... From what I've seen, all of these guys have been drafted into good situations, are going to be in enhancing situations. It's going to be promising."

The change in the new CBA does not incentivize a team below the salary cap floor to claim a player like Ramon Sessions. The amount that is owed on Sessions contract ($247,171-based on 2 years of service) on the day he is claimed would apply to the minimum team salary (90% of the cap), not his $1,471,382 salary. There are two teams, Chicago ($5.9M) and Dallas ($3.6M) below the floor.
