The Sixers have traded the 39th pick in the draft to the Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In return, the Sixers get L.A.'s second-round pick in 2019 (via Bulls) and cash. Philly is overloaded with picks, having held Nos. 10, 26, 38, 39, 56 and 60 going into Thursday's draft, and it wouldn't be surprising to see a few more of their picks involved in trades over the next 24 hours.

Kyle O'Quinn has declined his $4.2 million player option in favor of unrestricted free agency.

No surprise here, since the 28-year-old center is coming off his best NBA season with averages of 7.1 points, 6.1 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.3 blocks and 0.5 steals in just 18.0 minutes per game. His fantasy value depends almost entirely on where he signs as a free agent, but he's proven that a 20-24 minute role is sufficient for low-end value in roto leagues.

Dewayne Dedmon has picked up his $7.2 million player option for the 2018-19 season, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania.

Dedmon reached the threshold for his $900k incentives to kick in next season, and may have calculated that he wouldn't get as much annually with a new deal. This also sets him up for a potential long-term contract next summer when he's an unrestricted free agent at age 30. His presence in Atlanta isn't great news for John Collins' fantasy value, but we still expect Collins to take a step forward in his sophomore campaign.

The Cavaliers, who have the No. 8 overall pick in the draft, are expected to make their selection without knowing what LeBron James intends to do in free agency.

James is on vacation with his family, according to ESPN.com. He has yet to inform the Cavs whether he'll opt out of the final year of his contract, with a decision due by June 29, but that's essentially a foregone conclusion -- the real question is whether he'll stay in Cleveland or sign elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent.

The Knicks reportedly met with Mohamed Bamba on Wednesday.

Marc Berman of the NY Post reiterated recent reports about Memphis gauging the market for a package involving the No. 4 pick and Chandler Parsons. "The Grizzlies are looking to trade out of the No. 4 slot," Berman writes, "and they have talked to the Knicks about a deal." Bamba reportedly doesn't want to be drafted by Memphis, but he looks like a lock for the top-five picks regardless.

The Cavaliers are not actively shopping Kevin Love heading into Thursday's NBA Draft, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com said earlier this week that the Cavs haven't been given any hints on LeBron James staying or leaving, so obviously that is a mega factor in Love's future. Considering the Cavs traded their 2019 pick to the Hawks with a top-10 protection in the next two years, it sure does make sense to tank it up. If Love does stay in Cleveland for a while, he could be a fantasy force again.

Marvin Bagley III is the current favorite to go No. 2 to the Kings, but teams in the lottery think that the Kings can't resist Luka Doncic, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

All the talk of Luka sliding from earlier this week seems to have reversed with this report and ESPN reporting that the Hawks are looking at the 19-year-old phenom, as well. Doncic wasn't able to attend his pre-draft meetings because he just won an ACB title with Real Madrid. He has the highest upside of any player in the draft.

Orlando will likely will choose between Wendell Carter Jr., Kevin Knox, Michael Porter Jr., Collin Sexton and Trae Young, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Robbins is one of the best beats in the league, so we'll trust this somewhat long list assuming the Magic stay at No. 6. One of these things is not like the others with four of these five guys having some length at their positions, but Trae Young is one of the smallest players to be selected in the lottery.
