If the Lakers win the lottery, the Sixers win the lottery.
The chances are not good, but it is better to have some chance than no chance at all.
As a result of the draft day deal last June between Philadelphia and Boston, the Sixers own the rights to the Lakers' first-round pick. But there are several conditions.
If the pick is No. 2 or No. 3, it goes to Boston. But if it is No. 1, Philly gets it.
