The pick could’ve only gotten LESS valuable for trades at the lottery
No, they shouldn’t.

Correct, but no one can execute any trades now. The correct comparison period would be at the trade deadline and the pick is considerably MORE valuable than it was back then. Why would you trade for a 25% chance at the #1 pick when you could hold off an potentially trade for the #1 pick outright?
