LA Lakers 2014 NBA Draft Board: Post Lottery Edition
USA TODAY Sports

It seemed like destiny.

The Los Angeles Lakers, one of the most decorated franchises in the history of sports, had just a 6.3 percent chance of winning the 2014 NBA draft lottery. However, after the team's worst finish in over 50 years, it really felt like a surefire bet that L.A. would somehow come away with a top-three pick to redeem their dreadful 27-55 record.

Well, it didn’t happen.

The Lakers will have the seventh overall selection when the NBA draft rolls around on June 26, which is disappointing for fans that had their sights set on studs like Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid.

But while the Lakers will likely miss out on the cream of the crop, there will still be plenty of talent available when it’s their turn to pick. Read on for an updated look at the Lakers' big board.
