NBA Draft: Who is Svi Mykhailiuk, the Lakers' 47th pick?

Paul George could be crucial to the Lakers getting who they want this summer

The 2018 NBA Draft represented another opportunity for the Los Angeles Lakers to make progress in their quest to return to the mountain top, which is a process that could be quickly accelerated through free agency.

Former Michigan basketball star Moe Wagner made the bold decision to declare for the NBA draft, without an agent following the Wolverines NCAA tournament run.

Leave it to Adrian Wojnarowski to drop an important piece of Philadelphia 76ers news the eve of the NBA Draft. The Lakers have positioned themselves to make a run at LeBron James and Paul George with the ability to create to max contract slots. "He plays with energy and is light on his feet".

"We feel he's going to be a special, special player". "Dirk (Nowitzki) had a huge impact on that, just being a player that made it, a player that did incredible things in the league, and also being a player that was under the radar for a long time, and just this skinny kid from Germany, similar to me".

Wagner is already familiar with Staples Center after leading MI to two victories in the arena during the West Regional last March.

The first is that, is reports are correct, Leonard wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers traded away their own first-round pick in this draft, the 12th overall, in their deal with Phoenix six years ago to acquire Steve Nash in their disastrous attempt to build a superteam. The Lakers - who struggled from 3-point range last season (29th out of 30 teams) - surely are enamored with the Ukrainian sharpshooter's blistering 44.4 percent clip from the arc during his senior season.

"Both of (them) were elbowing Earvin and I that this guy would be fun to play with", Pelinka said. "Luke (Walton) was incredibly excited with the choices, and we're just thrilled with the way the night ended for us".

"If you have success in any walk of life, you're going to face that", Pelinka said.
