The Los Angeles Lakers secured the #7 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.
After a train wreck of a season, the Lakers sent “Big Game” James Worthy along with some good luck charm bobble heads. Unfortunately, the luck was not there as the Purple and Gold fell one spot from their projected spot at #6.
The last time the Lakers found themselves in the lottery was 2005, when they acquired a young and raw center from New Jersey: Andrew Bynum.
It is unknown what the Lakers plan on doing with their #7 pick, but the consensus is that they will do all they can to trade the pick to acquire an established star to pair with Kobe Bryant in an attempt to win sooner rather than later.
