What first? Even if they finish 2nd worst, it's still nearly 50% they lose their pick, if they keep it it's super valuable, and if they keep it then they lose it unprotected next year.Sam Amick says the following about Paul George and the Lakers:
I imagine Magic is offering up at least Ingram and a first as we speak. Not sure Brown+Nets 1st beats that.
So can't really easily offer this year or next right? Have to offer it ONLY top 3 this year or 2019. MAybe they want the top 3 upside but not being able to trade it clean this year or next isn't a rebuild chip
