The Los Angeles Lakers’ pick will go to the Philadelphia 76ers (via the Michael Carter-Williams trade) if it falls outside the top three.

The situation with the Sacramento Kings’ is the following: If it falls inside the top 10, the Philadelphia 76ers have the right to swap picks. If it falls outside the top 10, it will go to the Chicago Bulls.

The New Orleans Pelicans’ pick (via the DeMarcus Cousins/Buddy Hield trade) will go to Sacramento unless it falls inside the top three.
