Los Angeles Lakers select Moritz Wagner with No. 25 pick

Los Angeles Lakers select Moritz Wagner with No. 25 pick

LeBron James is reportedly zeroed in on signing either with the Cleveland Cavaliers or Los Angeles Lakers in free agency.

The first is that, is reports are correct, Leonard wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Knocks on his defense and wingspan put him in the second round, but the Lakers were impressed by his skill in their private workout.

If George indeed decides to pass up the Lakers when they have the ability create two max slots, that would definitely make LeBron's next move more complicated. What we noticed in all the games we went to in person is, he is a tremendous passer and great screener in pick-and-roll situations, coached by John Beilein, who is a terrific coach.

"When you build a team, you have to have pillars that you build on", Pelinka said.

The Lakers went all worldwide with their draft this year. He wants to be in L.A. These are things I'm getting through the grapevine.

Just under 7 feet tall, Wagner's 3-point prowess forced opposing bigs to abandon the paint and guard him on the perimeter, opening the court up for his teammates.

While it may not be fun to think about, one day, the Philadelphia 76ers will run out of assets procured by ex-GM Sam Hinkie and will have to get creative with the process of procuring talent to fill out their rosters. "This is a question where I can't win". The former UCLA standout averages a career double-double and is a 37 percent 3-point shooter for his career. "I am going to love it and leave it all out there [for the Lakers]". Newman will join Kansas teammate Svi Mykhailiuk with the Lakers, selected 47th overall in Thursday's draft.

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.

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