The NBA Draft Is Full Of Potential

In addition to the two picks the Lakers already have for Thursday's draft, an ESPN report revealed that the Lakers' front office is trying to acquire another first-round pick. As the we get closer and closer to the draft, there are plenty of rumors swirling about other possible trades and who teams are targeting, so we're here to help you sort through the mud.

The draft order underwent a major shakeup over the weekend, when the Celtics reportedly agreed to trade the No. 1 pick to the Sixers for the No. 3 pick and two protected future first-round picks. If not, the Lakers are willing to take De'Aaron Fox or Jayson Tatum if they are still on the board.

Jordan Clarkson said he would adjust to any new situation, regardless of who the Lakers draft with the No. 2 pick. During their first workout, the Lakers were unimpressed with Ball's conditioning.

The 2017 NBA Draft is here. If the Pacers are in a hurry to offload George entering the NBA Draft week, LA could quickly become an active trade partner considering the young players on the roster and draft picks LA holds. In this situation, the Celtics may opt to use Thomas as trade bait in the summer rather than allow him to demand a max contract amounting to $30 million per year in 2018. While the Lakers "earned" their number two pick by not having a great season, something that was plagued them in recent years.

Phoenix is very, very high on Lonzo Ball, and think he's the ideal fit next to Devin Booker in the backcourt, and that would likely be who they would trade up for. How many point guards will be taken in the top 8? He averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists a game as a freshman last season.
