New, comments

The Lakers lottery results are in... and they dropped.

The NBA Draft Lottery results are in and the Los Angeles Lakers have dropped the to the seventh-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. "Big Game" James Worthy represented the team in New York and locked in the Lakers pick. The team had a 30.5 percent chance to land the seventh selection going into the big night and weren't able to hold on to their sixth spot. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers are in the top-3

The team wound up in the back-half of the top-10. The highly-touted prospects like Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker and the ever-climbing Dante Exum will be out of the team's reach. This places the team in the range with forwards Noah Vonley, Aaron Gordon and Julius Randle with other guards like Marcus Smart could also be in the conversation for Los Angeles.

A tough season leads to the lottery, which leads to three teams hitting pay dirt and seven others left with disappointment. Disappointing season leads to lottery let down, but the team didn't drop significantly. The trick will be selecting the right player with the No. 7 pick.
