  • 2023 second-round pick*
  • 2024 or 2025 first-round pick (New Orleans can take one outright, the Lakers own the other, but can’t trade either currently as a result)
  • 2024 Clippers second-round pick
  • 2025 second-round pick
  • 2025 Clippers second-round pick
  • 2026 first-round pick (can’t be traded because the Lakers already traded 2027)
  • 2027 second-round pick
  • 2028 first-round pick (can’t be traded Jazz may own 2027)
  • 2029 first-round pick
