Los Angeles makes surprising 2022 NBA draft day trade

The Los Angeles Lakers were set to head into the 2022 NBA Draft without a single selection, but that’s now changed.

The organization has completed a Draft Day trade with the Orlando Magic, acquiring the No. 35 overall pick in exchange for a future second rounder and cash.

Via Woj:

The Lakers did have a first-round pick initially, but it was given to the Pelicans in the Anthony Davis trade a few years back. It was reported recently that LA was keen on trading for a second-rounder, with discussions taking place with the Hawks and Pistons in the mid-40’s. Needless to say, they got an even higher pick with this move.

More to come.
