I'm not a fan of this idea, mostly because the years that MIL or UTA are 1st in the draft, a top level prospect will be more likely to wait to come out until they can possibly go to a LA/NY/CHI market when they have a top pick. Plus the great teams getting a top pick in the draft while a struggling small market team getting a 30th pick when they have 0 chance of improving the next year cant be good for the league, and is probably worse than whats happening now.

I think the wheel idea is something that college basketball(because players stay longer in hopes of going to a specific group of teams) and large market winning organization would love, but it still leaves the small market losers in the dust.
