Figure I open this up as the team looks listless and our head coach continues to he clueless.

Bol Bol?

Actually my bad, we will still have a pretty good pick, lottery or not. Bol Bol’s injury will cause him to drop, probably into the mid first. I’m not big on the depth of this draft, but that could be a valuable asset.

Overreaction much?

 

This is a valid thread. 

 

Last year we were 23-34 before ASB. This year 28-29. Anything can happen.

LeBron was in Cleveland last year.

If the thread was made to look at legitimate draft prospects, I’m all for it. Already stated that. If it’s going to turn into guys posting Zion highlights and calculating our odds of landing a top pick, then it’s not an overreaction. Any team with LeBron on it should not be focusing on the lottery.

Well too bad, there's nothing we can do. This team does not want to win this year. Losing to the like of Cleveland, Knicks @ home and now the Hawks.

This is exactly what is going to happen

i am looking at Bol Bol.. that kid Romeo Langford from Indiana... Sekou looks nice from France. Darius Garland from Vandy maybe cool The Lakers will need some pg help if Lonzo is not traded. I am not trusting his health. Tre Jones would be NICE for a back up as well, kid is playing well for Duke.

Even if this was about draft prospects we're not keeping this pick anyway lol

The higher the pick is the better. Because that means it's more likely we keep one of Ingram/Ball/Kuzma.

We might have a 1% chance to get the #1 overall. That's happened many times before. Imagine Zion under LeBron's tutelage. A man can only dream...

Depending on how you see it, the Lakers have issues with both picking the right guys and developing their young talent. I can't say I'm excited to see what the current front office does with this pick.

 

If the Lakers do intend on using this pick in a trade, I wonder how they go about it? They can't trade the pick until they use it because a team can't trade 1st round picks 2 years in a row. The Lakers 3-star plan works best if they use cap space first, so what happens if the guy they want isn't the same as the guy another team would want?

 

I know nothing about NBA prospects. But, I do remember a lot of guys here trashing Luka Doncic last year.

If we have a high pick and Boston's picks don't end up panning out great, we regain leverage in AD trade talks. We can pick whoever NOP wants and then that guy to them and maybe even retain one of Ingram/Kuzma/Ball.

I think Lebron would have him moved like he moved Wiggins.

The most likely scenario is that the Lakers get a pick in the 13-17 range, although i could see them firing up the old tank in case Lebron has to miss any more games. I mean, if we come out of the all-star break as unfocused as we've been going into the all-star break i wouldn't be shocked if they chose to sit Lebron for the rest of the season. Not just to tank, but also to avoid another Kobe-situation.

 

13-17 is Bol Bol / Jontay Porter range.

Now I know we won’t be in a position to draft him, nor if we are will we keep the pick

If we somehow land in the top 5 your can bet we will he sending that pick to the pelicans for Davis

Having said that I wouldn’t touch bol bol

He’s a 7 foot lanky center who has a unique skill set sure but already broke his foot

7 footers who show foot problems early are never a good sign

You can kinda get away with knee issues with 7 footers but like a pitcher with shoulder/elbow problems

A center with foot problems is a total no go

Rarely do those not become consistent persistent problems

Usually it’s a sign that their base cannot hold their size
