Default What was the point of first round pick from Cavs to Lakers?

2018 first round draft pick to L.A. Lakers
Cleveland's 1st round pick to the L.A. Lakers protected for selections 1-3 in 2018 [Cleveland-L.A. Lakers, 2/8/2018]


Protected 1 to 3, what for? It is number 26

What happens if LeBron tears his ACL, the Cavs drop into the lottery at 13, and they end up with the #2 pick?

With that level of talent they'd still make the POs.

Probably with an even better record since the other players can flourish

Lol but let's be real...

Right now the Cavs are only 5 wins ahead of 8th place. It's entirely possible a LeBron injury would keep them out of the playoffs, and there is a chance (a very small chance, but still a chance) that a late lotto sneaks into the #3 spot in the draft.

Exactly. Only Billy King is dumb enough to trade unprotected 1st round picks.

Cavs felt bad about us giving the Celtics their franchise center this year

Unlikely Boston get lakers pick this year unless you get #2 or #3 from lottery rolls.
