The Lakers were the only team to move up in the draft, essentially swapping slots with the Knicks.

Ryan Ward

Now it may come down to: Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns? Emmanuel Mudiay might also be an option they explore. #Lakers

Bill Oram

I'm not sure having one guard on the roster is a winning formula... twitter.com/MrJenkins_22/s…

Mike Bresnahan

Byron Scott: "Obviously this is a step in the right direction for our franchise." Said he felt all day Lakers would get 1st or 2nd pick.

Serena Winters

There’s nothing not to love about Kobe on Twitter. twitter.com/kobebryant/sta…

Ben Bolch

Of course, you still have to make the pick, develop the pick, hope it doesn't get injured or flop. It's never instant or automatic cure-all.

Janis Carr

Count Kobe among those happy in Laker Nation twitter.com/kobebryant/sta…

Kobe Bryant

We played like crap all season so it's only right we get the #2 pick HA #lakerluck #goodday

Bill Oram

What a victory for the Lakers. Was looking like Russell/Mudiay/Winslow. All great. But Okafor/Towns in a different class.

Mike Trudell

Like @Jeanie Buss asked, Lakers fans … who do you want at No. 2?

Gary Lee

It's been unfamiliar territory for the Lakers, city and fans these past two seasons, but there should be great optimism moving forward.

Gary Lee

With the No. 2 pick, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and ample cap space, the worst part of the rebuild may very well be over for Lakers.

Mike Bresnahan

You can already feel the Lakers' burden lifted when talking to team officials. Something finally went right for them.

Mike Trudell

The Lakers endured perhaps their worst season ever in 2014-15 … but they do get the No. 2 pick in the 2015 Draft as a result.

Jeanie Buss

Now #LakersNation send me who you think #Lakers should take at #2. I can't comment but I will enjoy reading your tweets!!

Arash Markazi

The Lakers will end up with Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor. A solid building block for the future.

Mike Bresnahan

Huge night for the Lakers. Not only did they hang onto their pick, but they'll get either Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns. Huge.

Janis Carr

More luck like this and Jim Buss will be turning Clippers locker room into an Owners Lounge, hey @Serena Winters

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott, a No. 4 overall pick himself, delivered pretty well for the Lakers with his appearance just now.

Kevin Ding

Lakers have been looking at the two big men, Towns and Okafor, ahead of the rest, so they have to be pleased with the No. 2 pick tonight.

Arash Markazi

The Lakers came thisclose to the No. 1 pick in the draft but they moved up from No. 4 to No. 2. A great day for the Lakers.

Ryan Ward

THE LAKERS HAVE THE NO. 2 PICK IN THE NBA DRAFT!!!

Serena Winters

First pick in the 2015 NBA Draft goes to the Minnesota Timberwolves

Bill Oram

Lakers get the second pick.

BREAKING: LAKERS HAVE THE 2ND PICK IN THE 2015 NBA DRAFT

Arash Markazi

This is the Lakers' highest draft pick since having the No. 1 overall pick in 1982 (James Worthy).

David Brickley

Already the best day since Game 7 2010 for Lakers fans. #NBADraft #Top3

Bill Oram

Lakers had a 37.8 percent at top 3. Which is a better chance than Nick Young (36.9) had of making a 3 last season.

Arash Markazi

The Lakers had an 11.9% chance to get the No. 1 pick and a 37.8% chance to get a Top 3 pick coming into today. They will be in the Top 3.

Mike Trudell

For those asking: the Knicks, who had the 2nd best odds, fell to No. 4, meaning the Lakers moved into the top 3 from their 4th slot.

Ramona Shelburne

Lakers fans Freaking out right now at this draft party. http://t.co/AHVpmDMq6U

Serena Winters

Bill Oram

Lakers will have a top three pick. Wow. Who do ya like?

Mike Trudell

This means the Lakers keep their pick.

Bill Oram

Lakers will keep their pick. Kings pick sixth.

Serena Winters

Remember when the story came out the the Clippers turned the Lakers locker room into an Owner's Lounge during the playoffs?

Serena Winters

Jeanie Buss on if she was happy when the Clippers lost: "No not at all. I feel that Steve Ballmer is a great owner...great for the league."

Serena Winters

Jeanie Buss, feeling like all Lakers fans right now, "I'm nervous." 45 minutes to go. #NBADraftLottery

Serena Winters

Jeanie also just chatted about the plan for the Lakers new state of the art practice facility, hopes it also aids in recruiting free agents

Lakers’ best chance is at No. 5. There’s 35.1% chance L.A. will be draft at No. 5. 11.9% they’ll be drafting at No. 1 on June 25.

Ryan Ward

Only a few hours left (5:30pm PST) until the Lakers’ fate is determined in the NBA Draft Lottery. 82.2% chance the keep their top-five pick.

Laker drama doesn't start until 7th pick announced tonight. Picks 8 thru 14 irrelevant to Lakers b/c they can't mathematically fall that far

Mike Bresnahan

Only team to move from No. 4 to No. 1 since 1996? New Orleans in 2012. The latest on the Lakers and the lottery: latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Arash Markazi

There is, of course, a 17.3% chance the Lakers don't end up with a Top 5 pick and therefore lose their first round pick.

Arash Markazi

The Lakers have an 11.9% chance to get the No. 1 pick, a 37.8% chance to get a Top 3 pick and an 82.7% chance to get a Top 5 pick.

Mike Bresnahan

Lottery day finalllly here. Lakers' No. 4 spot hasn't been luckiest: Since 1996, only 5 teams moved up from it, 13 fell and one stayed at 4.
