The Lakers took Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, a 6-foot-8 sharpshooter out of Kansas, in the second round with the 47 overall pick. "I think LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does". Fresh off another NBA Finals appearance, owner Dan Gilbert and the front office team chose to draft Alabama freshman standout point guard Collin Sexton.
For just the fourth time in Roy Williams' 15-year tenure at the University of North Carolina, not a single Tar Heel was selected in the NBA Draft.
George isn't the only star who's indicated he wants to be in purple and gold though. The Lakers were the second-worst 3-point shooting team in the National Basketball Association last season.
"We feel he's going to be a special, special player". And Luke felt that when we had him in our building that he had off-the-charts basketball IQ. Bovada has put out updated odds to land LeBron and the Lakers are at the top.
Wagner isn't a great defender and like Love, he probably never will be. Youngmisuk didn't just insinuate that Wagner is the type of athletic big that the Lakers are looking for. He led MI with 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game last season, demonstrating versatility and a steady outside shot to go with his big-game clutch performances in the tournament. The Sixers appear to be the best fit for the superstar to sign with them. His 38 percent 3-point mark isn't bad either.

Shaq thinks LeBron James should forget about chasing championships
After that, he spent a year apiece with the Phoenix Suns, the Cleveland Cavaliers (alongside Lebron ), and the Boston Celtics. You can make the case that going after rings, namely with the hope that he'd beat the Warriors to get them, is a bad idea.
"I'm speechless", said Wagner, who fought back tears after being selected.
This was the first time in five years that the Lakers were not drafting in the lottery. 38, 56 and 60 in the second round in addition to the 10 and 26 picks in the first round.
Wagner probably won't see a lot of minutes in his rookie season, but Walton will likely give him the same type of opportunities he gave Larry Nance Jr. before he was dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers. While many teams like taking players based on what they might be, the Lakers have been selecting players that are ready to perform rather than trying to hit it big with a prospect.
