The lottery takes place on Tuesday. But only after Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery will we know just how important it will be. Here's a amusing story: if the Lakers don't win any of the Top 3 picks in the lottery, they have to give their first round pick to the Sixers.

Because of another previous trade, they also will get the Los Angeles Lakers' first-round pick if it isn't in the top three at the lottery.

The process is repeated for picks two and three, and every other team is then slotted after in reverse order of record. If LA falls out of the top four, then their pick goes to Philadelphia based on numerous trades that originated back when the Lakers acquired Steve Nash.
