Since we love to play in the world of speculation, here's one to vote on.

Assume that all trades go through as they are currently positioned (We think.). We end up with the protected Lakers pick, which could become the Sac '19 pick.

If you had a choice right now, which one would you pick? If you pick the Lakers, you know that you are getting a 2-5 pick, no questions asked. It's next year and there are tons of big men available. Imagine ending up with #1 and #2?

If you take Sacramento, though, you have a shot at #1. Sacramento is one of the worst run organizations in the NBA, so the chances that they'll still be bad two years from now is pretty high. And we have no Brooklyn pick that year.

Probably Lakers. We could end up with two of Ayton/Porter/Bamba/Doncic if it's in that 2-4 range.

If we can snag Ayton and Porter, then all the negative I've said about trading the #1 will be taken back.

I voted Sacramento as I'd love to get a shot at Marvin Bagley. As been mentioned he's a once in a decade type prospect.

Lakers, as that would most likely mean 2 of the top 5 picks in a big man heavy draft.

Ignoring draft strength (since I have no clue), I think it'd probably be better roster and salary wise to spread the picks out, since the C's have the Nets '18 which hopes to be another top 5 pick, I'd rather have Sacramento's 2019 pick.

Fun fact, the Kings have had a Top-10 pick for 9 straight seasons now.

Hoping the C's continue to be competitive for the foreseeable future, and it's hard enough for one rookie to get playing time in a situation like that, let alone two.

Of course with trader Danny, who knows who will even be on the roster next year or what he can flip two top-5 picks in '18 for.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Lakers pick for sure.  That's two "shots on goal" for the best big man lottery class in a long time.

Easily the lakers pick.  Trying to imagine ending up with the #1 pick this far out is just too much.  The odds that it happens are pretty astronomical.  Just give me 2-5 next year and I'm good.

Lakers 2018.  I'll take a guaranteed 2-5 pick over a wildcard nearly every time.

Although it would be nice to have a team to root against in 2018-19, too
I'm bitter.

That'll be Memphis, to a certain extent. The pick is top 8 protected, then top 6 in '20, then unprotected in '21.
The Clippers pick is lottery protected in 2019.

Went with the Lakes because I'm not getting any younger. Who knows if I'll still be around in 2019.

The Sac pick is number one protected.  Even without that I rather have the Lakers pick.

That changes things as 2019 pick is Marvin Bagley protected. I'd like to change my vote to the LAL pick now.
