Certainly what most people expect, but by no means a given.
They lost four straight immediately after Oladipo went down. They've won 6 of 7 since.

Why kidding?

Well, Isaac just a chrysalis.
There's been talk of trading Gordon or Vuc.
Vuc a throwback post C (non-stretchy).

They might stick with all 3, and it might work.  But will still take time for Isaac to be consistent.  Looks good when it is working (last 7 games).  And they could really use a better PG than DJ Auggiemysonmyson.

ORL draft history spotty.  And they haven't been good at developing players (Oladipo; almost gave up on Gordon multiple times).
Zonja was a #5 pick.
They just took MoBomb #6, probably with the idea of moving on from Vuc.

They traded Oladipo & Sabonis for Ibaka, then at the end of that year flipped Ibaka for T Ross and a 1st which they used on a 7'2" Latvian who hasn't come over yet.
OKC flipped Ola & Sab for Paul George.

ORL 4 straight years of high drafting: OLadipo (#2), Gordon (4), Zonja 5, Sabonis 11.  And all they have is Gordon left.  Then drafted Isaac 6 and Bamba 6.  Bamba could well be a bust from a solid draft.
They could have taken Shai, Sexton or Zhaire to address their PG void. 

Golden Age of Latvian hoops:
Kristaps Porziņgis, Davis Bertans, Rodions Kurucs and Anzejs Pasecniks drafted by ORL.

I didn't realize that SAC drafted Zach Collins #10 then traded him immediately to POR for the #15 Justin Jax and #20 Henry Giles.

It was a very deep draft so the trade down for 2 picks move was terrific in theory.  Just too bad they didn't take John Collins at 15 and  OG/Kuz at 20 (though Giles is a good flyer at that slot).

JusJax played high school ball on a Hoston Homeschool Christian Youth team ...

Uh,,,,,Boston plays Philly round 1......

Indy drops 2 spots, maybe 3 if the Nyets surge. Matthews does not replace Olidipo.

They have won 6 of 7
