At the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery, the Los Angeles Lakers had a 4.9% chance of landing a top-four pick and successfully moved up seven spots from the No. 11 pick to do so.
Although the Lakers will have the No. 4 pick, the selection will be made for the New Orleans Pelicans on June 20.
Nearly five months since the 2018-19 NBA trade deadline, the Lakers traded Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and multiple draft picks (No. 4 included) for Anthony Davis.
However, the Davis trade cannot be completed until July 6.
Despite the Lakers not having their 2019 first round draft pick, they reportedly are attempting to purchase second round draft picks. It is an effective way to fill out the roster without impacting their cap space for free agency.
The 2019 NBA Draft will air live on ESPN beginning at 4 p.m. PT. It will also be streaming on ESPN app (requires cable authentication), ESPN+, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now (requires subscription).
