Excerpted from SI:

"According to the protections, the Lakers get to keep their pick if it remains in the top five but they must send it to the Sixers if it lands at six or seven. Put another way, two teams must jump over the Lakers in the lottery order for the Sixers to receive the pick. In case you're wondering, there is a 17.2% chance of that happening, leaving L.A. empty-handed after the worst season in its 67-year franchise history."

This is a question for all of the more informed NBA followers than me. Has SI accurately described the scenario and probability such that the Lakers would lose rights to their lottery pick ?

How many of the following 4 statements are correct, Davo?

The front-office has looked rudderless since longtime owner Dr. Jerry Buss died in 2013, coach Byron Scott was a mess in his first year in L.A., Bryant is clogging the salary cap while clinging to his past greatness, the rest of the roster is severely talent and potential,
