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

A Los Angeles Lakers website thinks they know who the Lakers plan to pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.

The Lakers acquired the 25th overall pick in the trade deadline deal that sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Channing Frye and Isaiah Thomas.

The Sixers didn't wait until draft night to start their wheeling and dealing.

"We do feel like the road is a flexible road for us, if July 1 happens with one or two superstar players, great", Pelinka reiterated. Many people were skeptical of Kyle Kuzma when the Lakers first drafted him previous year late in the first round, but those doubts were quickly put to rest.

The 6-foot-11 Wagner entered the draft after leading the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament championship game.

And when you look at what Wagner can do, it's possible he could be a pretty good imitation of Kevin Love, who has had a stellar career.

Perhaps even more amazingly, only two of the players on the list (Glenn Robinson and Mitch McGary) were tabbed as top-70 players out of high school (although Wagner was not given a numerical ranking due to residing outside the U.S.). "Coach [Luke] Walton used to play, he is a player's coach, he wants his players to play and be confident, and they focus on playing fast, and that is something I am very excited to prove".

LeBron James is the ultimate target and a gettable one for the Lakers through free agency.

Honors: All-Big 12 second team, he broke the Kansas single-season record for 3-pointers made with 115 in his senior season. The Lakers have positioned themselves to make a run at LeBron James and Paul George with the ability to create to max contract slots.

Wagner could also be a potential replacement for Kuzma, who could be part of a trade to get Leonard.

Los Angeles co-owner and governor Jeanie Buss called a meeting, which was led by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, to warn employees not to tamper ahead of the free agent signing period, according to ESPN.

The Lakers worked out 125 players over the past few months.
