The Los Angeles Lakers acquired the Orlando Magic’s No. 35 pick in Thursday night’s NBA draft for a future second-round pick and cash, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Lakers were without a pick and had been working to move into the draft. The Pelicans own the Lakers’ first-round pick (No. 9), stemming from the Anthony Davis trade.
The Magic have the No. 1 pick in the draft as well as the No. 32 pick. The Lakers don’t outright own a first-round pick until the 2026 draft.
