They can verbally agree to the trade now and make it official later if NOP is willing. The problem though is that you need the salary from #4 to be included and once you sign a draft pick you have to wait 30 days. Thus I think NOP probably doesn't wait unless it was a sticking point with LAL since I feel like they don't want to do LAL any favors.
Interested in seeing what picks protections look like. #4, 2020 1st unp, and 2022 1st mild protections with the deal done July 6th?
