The 2020 NBA Draft is set for November 18th after the longest season in League history. The order for the first and second round is set and we already know that the Minnesota Timberwolves will be selecting No. 1 overall after winning the NBA Draft Lottery back in August. Some of the top prospects who could be selected high in the draft include SG Anthony Edwards, G LaMelo Ball and C James Wiseman, among others.

The 2020 NBA Champion Lakers only have one pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Not that they need a stable of picks to retool or something. LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be back together next season, and potentially for another 4-5 after that. So long as the Lakers have two of the top 10 players in the NBA, they’ll contend.

Here, we’ll be going over all the draft picks for the Los Angeles Lakers in the first and second rounds.

First Round: 28th overall (traded to OKC, MIN own rights)
Second Round: Traded to ORL (PHI owns rights)
