Lakers reportedly acquire second-round pick from the Sixers

  • LeBron James and Chris Paul

Head coach Luke Walton said Wagner's personality electrified the room. We won't rest until we get it right. We love him, this city loves him. As you guys know, Magic is all about excellence here, and we want to outwork everybody.

It's also fair to expect Michigan's draft success to continue in 2019.

In addition to Young and Huerter, Spellman will join a young Hawks core featuring point guard Dennis Schroder and forward John Collins, two of the team's first round draft picks from prior years.

Lastly, with the 47th pick, the Lakers selected Ukrainian guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, who played his college ball at Kansas. Should Lopez leave, Wagner could help offset the 112 3-pointers he made last season.

"That's a great question", Altman said, when asked if he thought LeBron would enjoy playing alongside Sexton next season. Youngmisuk didn't just insinuate that Wagner is the type of athletic big that the Lakers are looking for.

I don't think he wants to follow in Kobe Bryant's shadow. "This is a question where I can't win". The Lakers will be players for both James and Leonard in the 2018 offseason.

"They obviously are a very flashy franchise", Wagner said.

Thursday night's draft came a little more than a week before what could be the Lakers' most important free agency period since Shaquille O'Neal signed in 1996. He averaged 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds during his junior year at MI, shooting 52.8 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from three-point range. Surprisingly, he was one of the best rookies this season. Wagner can play with his back to the basket and he is a decent passer. It's just the way I'm built. "He went through it this year a little bit with some of our young guys, especially in the playoffs".

With the No. 30 pick in the National Basketball Association draft, the Atlanta Hawks selected Omari Spellman from Villanova University.

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. Philadelphia selected Mikal Bridges, from Villanova, but traded him to the Phoenix Suns.

But Johnson and Pelinka acquired the 25th pick from the Cleveland Cavaliers during a February trade-deadline deal that sent Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson to the Cavs for Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye.

Free agency is around the corner for the National Basketball Association, and rumors continue swirling over where LeBron James will play next season.
