Still, the Lakers won't find teams eager to help them land two max stars when free agency begins July 1. And with the 47th pick, the Lakers tabbed 6-8 shooting guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, a Ukrainian native who set a Kansas single-season record with 115 made 3-point field goals.

He returned to North Carolina for his senior season and averaged 17.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists, earning third team All-American honors.

Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man.

The Lakers have been bad for the last few seasons with an eye on this year's free agent class.

"We're building a culture, and he brings a lot to the table as far as the passion he plays with, his unselfish nature, the way that he sprints the floor".




"For us, we're sticking to those core principles, which are guys that are high-IQ basketball players that play the game the right way, that can shoot, that have length, that have versatility, that have toughness".

The Lakers were able to make a trade before the draft with the Philadelphia 76ers for the 39th overall pick in exchange for the Lakers' 2019 second-round pick via the Chicago Bulls and cash, according to Wojnarowski.

While Los Angeles does have young players to offer San Antonio in a trade for Leonard, it lacks the necessary draft picks to compete with other teams looking to acquire the All-Star. Surprisingly, he was one of the best rookies this season. Knocks on his defense and wingspan put him in the second round, but the Lakers were impressed by his skill in their private workout.

But we've seen GMs say one thing and do another before, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Walker traded, especially since the 28-year-old's career arc wouldn't match up with a full-scale rebuild.

With the No. 30 pick in the National Basketball Association draft, the Atlanta Hawks selected Omari Spellman from Villanova University. And then Collin, we got to get there with experience as well. Here are the 2018 NBA Draft grades for the Los Angeles Lakers.
