What the Lakers are planning in the NBA Draft

The Lakers will try to negotiate a second round pick as there are no picks in a team of several young people.

The overall question is who is willing to give up such a choice and what the price is.

As previously reported, the two teams can partner with the Lakers in this negotiation.

Via Lakers Daily:

“Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer analyzed speculation across the league and focused on some teams that might be willing to exchange picks.

“The Lakers are widely known for looking for a second round draft topic. The Hawks (# 44) and Pistons (# 46) have options that are considered available.

If the Lakers complete their contract with Detroit on their 46th pick, the Lakers will win the pick in a successful position.

Three years ago, the board exchanged rights for the 46th pick in that year’s draft, eventually bringing the young Talen Horton-Tucker to Los Angeles.

In 2014, the Lakers received the 46th pick from the Washington Wizards. It was used to select Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson soon became a Lakers impact player as a rookie, was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, and won the Best Sixth Man Award last season.

Let’s see what Rob Pelinka and the company can do when the 23rd rolls back.
