If I understand correctly, it would be like a dual playoff system, correct? Top 8 vie for championship, bottom 8 vie for better lottery odds?

Javier Baez is a player ESPN has identified as benefiting from a change of scenery.  I can see the Cubs missing out on all 4 shortstops and trading for Baez as a door prize to keep the fans happy.  With hoopla and a couple of impactless other adds, they can self claim a successful off-season.
Sorry, that was a MLB link, not ESPN  https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-trade-candidates-heading-into-2023?partnerId=zh-20221201-771021-mlb-1-A&qid=1026&utm_id=zh-20221201-771021-mlb-1-A&bt_ee=scQn9GbNsU27HCRiQ1c1bEklqN1CgqaPlYJexMCi7ovDh0NDav5ZYe9E%2FTB0Jeuq&bt_ts=1669905221050

I plan to wait until management actually fails to make impactful moves before griping about their trying to save face.

Good assessment of the Bulls, but I'm not sure that management has a solution as long as Reinsdorf remains the owner.

Even the first round draft order could be decided based on points scored by non-playoff teams during the playoffs. That would reduce the incentives to tank and ignore your team if scoring the most points in the last month earned a better draft pick.

I like this idea a lot.

Expecting future rookies to produce especially their first year is asking a lot.

The current rookies Brisker, Gordon, Jones and Sanborn and Velus Jones need to take big steps next year.

Short term improvements should come from the FAs but even that's a crap shoot.
