The Lakers have three draft picks in the 2023 Draft:
1. The lesser of their own or New Orleans 1st
2. The 2nd round pick of the Chicago Bulls
3. Their own 2nd round pick
As of today (1/22/23), they would convey the 8th spot in the lottery to New Orleans, while receiving the 22nd pick from New Orleans via their swap rights.
The standings are crazy compact, with New Orleans within 2 games of being tied for the 17th pick, and the Lakers within 2 games of being tied for the 16th pick. So the second half of the season is going to be really important to where the Lakers end up picking in the first round.
The Lakers own 2nd as of today would be #38, and the Bulls 2nd would be #39.

Honestly, it's not looking that bad for the Lakers, even with BI back. I'm not quite sold on BI's durability (yet), and Zion's injury history isn't too promising either. Both of them are plagued with deep rooted injury concerns, and the Pels medical staff is kinda all over the place. Somewhat similar to the situation with AD. You just never know when they will pop again. _________________ "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." — Gandhi
If NO does well this season our picks gets worst right?
If so, what a season they picked to be good
We fed them frp so they could be better making this year's pick swap even better for them. Next year, it looks like they might get another high pick from us. Imagine if they got Wemba and then another top prospect next year, they might just have to trade BI. _________________ LeGoat!
Standings are incredibly bunched around the Pelicans. The Knicks, Clippers, Mavs, Suns amongst others are right there with them. Clippers are relatively healthy now and Kawhi is back in rhythm, Suns are getting guys back, Wood is potentially coming back this week, so I expect those teams to rise. With Zion out a minimum of 2 more weeks, they could conceivably drop 3-4 more spots in the standings.
They can't punt the 'swap' right, gotta swap or no swap at all?
This year is a swap unless we pass them in which case we just keep our own picks but they can punt the 2024 to 2025.
I don't wanna jinx it, but the damage is looking pretty minimal right now for this season.
If we pass them, I wonder if they just take this year's pick anyway.
If the Lakers play well down the stretch, they might be better next year. _________________ 💜💛 🏆 👀 🍖
