Randy’s Free Pick

The Milwaukee Bucks were already the better team, but they have a clear edge here with the trade the Lakers made. The Los Angeles Lakers won't have Westbrook after the trade, but they also won't have the players they got from Minnesota due to the quick turnaround. Hard to believe DLo and others are cleared this quickly. With an undermanned roster, I have to side with the Bucks and the reasonable number.
