Now can you imagine adding another top-5 pick this year? Or even use it as a trading piece, yet again? Let's keep our fingers crossed that the Lakers stay right around where they are.
With the 4th or 5th overall draft pick, they'll surely miss out on Marvin Bagley III and DeAndre Ayton. However, there could be some serious talent available.
To be honest, I thought the Lakers would be a bit better this season. I would've predicted them landing in the 7-9 range of picks. Yes, that is still possible, but what is wrong with getting a little excited at the thought of getting the pick?
Again, Let's keep our fingers crossed that the Lakers stay right around where they are.
