The Clippers make the big trade but it might be the Lakers who have the better future. They are not very good this season but you can see some seeds to what could be a quality team at some point.
Less so for Orlando. This is a bad team that does not appear to be getting much better. They should have a high pick but htey will have to invest it wisely.
Los Angeles Lakers
L.A. is coming off a loss but this is a pretty good spot to try and get a road win. The road record is where it should be for a team this calibre but they do win occasionally.
Kyle Kuzma is probably the best value pick from the draft right now. He leads the team in scoring and unlike most first year players looks like he actually knows how to play. He will reach whatever his ceiling is.
Julius Randle looks like a top 15 player some nights. He is harder to gurad then you think he will be and is a willing passer. He will never be a Draymond Green as a defender but may one day be his equal on offense.
Lonzo Ball is still out with an injury. His absence from the lineup seems to make difference to this club but he can play. He just can’t be a scorer until he learns to shoot.
Like most teams they struggle with consistency but this group is competing hard. That is how they surprise some of the better teams. They can just outplay the Maigic here though.
The Magic are looking to halt a two game losing streak but the injuries are really mounting. They have a five man group on the injured list that would easily beat whatever starting lineup they put out against the Lakers.
Added to that group after the last game is Aaron Gordon who will likely not play against Houston on Tuesday night. Iknow Iam not impressed with his development but that doesn’t change his value to this group. Ditto for Evan Fournier who will also likely not suit up Tuesday. Check their status.
The Magic are barely past the halfway point and they are already playing out the string. They have actually sunk below the Hawks in their own division and even though they are at home there are few teams I actually see them beating. The number is going to be interesting in this one.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Look for the Lakers to be the road favourite against the infirmed Magic. They have only been a road favourite once this season (0-1 SUATS)
They should be able to run the Magic off the floor if they want to in this spot. I am hoping there is a sportsbook looking the wrong way here. Maybe we get lucky.
