Imagine the Celtics get a first-round exit but in exchange get the Lakers' 2-5 pick. Oh man  8)

2-3

Well, even better! One of Doncic/Ayton/Bagley/Porter/Bamba will be the dream.  8)

His point is the only way the pick conveys is if its 2 or 3. The Lakers cannot, in any way, get the 4th or 5th pick.

Something like 7.1% to convey 2-3

Oh yes I was aware of that point. Basically of the five studded draft players listed 3-4 of them may still be up there for grabs. More options. Definitely better than pick #4 or #5.

But ultimately it's a long shot  :(

Nope.

2.9% chance to convey

Did they forget we're playing without our two all-stars?

For them to say we'd get "lapped" in the West shows their ultimate jealousy.

Or that the Lakers were the 10th worst team in the NBA?

I'll take getting "lapped" like that every year.

True, but I'd say they are much better odds than the odds of Danny Ainge trading two over-the-hill ex-superstars for 4 future 1st round picks - 2 of which become budding all-stars and one that was used to get Kryie.  ;D

10th.

As long as Sacramento doesn't have a miraculous turnaround, the protections Ainge got on this Lakers pick could be one more genius move by him and the team.
