Default ☆2015 Lakers Draft Thread ☆ Drafts D'Angelo Russell at #2

As of today one Laker loss or one Sacramento win guarantees the Lakers will finish with a bottom 5 record. They'll probably finish in the bottom 4 as Orlando has 4 more wins than the Lakers.

Early Entry Deadline for players is April 27
The Draft Lottery is usually held in mid May
the Draft itself will be June 25th

Don't know the exact numbers, i'm doing this from memory but something like they have a 10% chance of getting the top pick and a 80% chance of staying in the top 5 from their current placing

They also have Houston's first round pick which will be late first round and 1 possibly 2 second round picks depending on where the Clippers finish, I think we need Clipps to lose enough games where their second round pick falls between 51 and 55

Great info, thanks
Keeping an eye on the valuable Houston pick too.
Who will be there? Andrew Harrison? One of Gonzaga's frontline?

They have 82.2% keeping the pick in their current 4th spot. If they dropped to 5th, it goes down to a staggering 55.3%. If they got the 3rd spot, they would have 96% keeping their pick. Now it looks like likely keep the 4th spot, but if they lose their pick, those 2 wins over the sixers will be haunting

Don't worry, order will come down from top to lose those games. It doesn't even have to be obvious. Whoever is playing the 3rd best that night, bench them. The small things, such as rotation "tweaks", would be very difficult to spot, but it would be enough for that extra L.

Ofc, Sixers will get same orders. These last few games will be to see which team is better... AT LOSING!

Orlando beat the Bulls tonight, Lakers down by a bucket load in Denver on the second night of a back to back, if Lakers lose The Magic will be 5 games ahead of the Lakers in the win column with only 4 games to go. Looks like they'll have the 4th worst record at seasons end..

The 76ers only have to lose one game in their last 3 to lock into 3rd

I just saw that too. That's another reason why I don't like the idea of the Lakers potentially trading out of the top 4 and moving down (if the ping pong balls fall right). I like being in the top 4 especially since there's 4 guys who should all be good. Then use that late first rounder on a guy with some promise.

I think they make a run at Love and Rondo.

Yeah I think Rondo is the guy they're going for. Love would be nice but with Randle here it doesn't make a ton of sense. I'm also not sure he's necessarily a max contract kind of guy anymore.
