So for those interested the chances of the pick landing 2-5 and conveying based upon the Lakers final record are as follows (according to tweet from Kevin O'Connor).

75% chance if Lakers have the worst record
80.1% if second worst
80.4% if third worst
70.9% if fourth worst
46.4% if fifth worst
15.2% if sixth worst

Ideal scenario

Brooklyn 1st best odds
Lakers 2nd best odds
Can you imagine the stress during the lotto if they got down to that final 2?

It would be worse if the Lakers pick and a non-BRK pick are the final 2, with BRK out of the top 3. :D

We have to see how the draft, FA signings and trades play out but right now I see Phoenix, Brooklyn, Orlando and Sacramento as the contenders for the 1st pick. Hopefully, LAL doesn't get PG13 and just plays out the string and it's quite possible we get a 2-5 pick. If not, then a Sacramento 2018-2019 Season Watch Thread, along with Philly and Memphis and LAC will be up in no time ;) That'll be a hectic season to follow.

Lakers didn't get George. We officially have a good situation with this pick and the value of this pick just rose

After the Hill to Lakers rumor, George Hill signed with the Kings instead of the Lakers. :D

Plus ZBo also signed with the Kings. So they should officially be out of the running for worst in the West.

Now it's down to LA and Phoenix, and I definitely give the edge to Phoenix in being better and winning more games.

EDIT: You know what, I forgot about Lopez on LA. That'll make things tighter.

Lopez on LA means Lakers will win a few more games. Which means they end up 2nd worst. Which means Nets end up 1st. All planned  :laugh:

Perfect.

I'm not sold that Lopez is going to win LA many games. If he's starting next to Randle with Ball, Clarkson, and Ingram as the big minutes they should be the worst defensive team in the league again.

Gotta thread the needle on this one.  The pick is #1 protected and now I really don't want to wait for 2019.

Sources: Despite committing $18M for Caldwell-Pope, Lakers still trying to find a way to sign Rondo. Lakers have a $4.3M exception to use.

Better trade this pick before it's too late
