Lakers News: James Worthy Thinks Trading Lottery Pick Is ‘An Option’

With the NBA Draft Lottery set to take place tonight, the Lakers will finally know exactly where they will be selecting in the 2014 NBA Draft.

This draft is believed to be one of the deepest in years, headlined by players such as Joel Embiid and Jabari Parker. With teams looking to move up to get one of these franchise changing players, the Lakers could be in position to make some major moves.

Mitch Kupchak recently said that he would consider trading the Lakers draft pick if a good deal is offered, and in an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, James Worthy seemed to back up that idea:

That’s an option that’s very feasible, and if you can get the right pick, you can use it for your team or you can use it to get some players or trade that. Knowing Mitch, he’s extremely methodical and he’s going to weigh all the scenarios and I’m sure if it makes sense to trade the pick, I’m sure that’s one of the plays in his playbook.

The Lakers have a lot of holes on their roster, so the idea of getting multiple pieces instead of just one player, regardless of how good that one guy is, has to be intriguing to the front office.

The team is in the midst of a rebuild, and they are undoubtedly thinking about the big picture. Despite Kobe Bryant wanting immediate change, the Lakers will do what they believe is best for the organization and that may involve some big moves.
