In less than a week’s time the Lakers will know the fate of their 2017 and 2019 first round draft picks. If they land in the top three this year, the Lakers will keep both picks. Fall outside and the Lakers will ship those picks to Philadelphia and Orlando respectively.
While the Lakers still don’t know if they have their pick, the are reportedly considering four players should they keep it. According to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report, the Lakers are looking at Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz, Josh Jackson and De’Aaron Fox.
All four players could come in and contribute immediately to the team, or be used in a trade for a superstar such as Paul George or Jimmy Butler.
Only a few days left until the fate of the Lakers is determined.
