  • Baron Davis Lonzo Ball is'type of player Le Bron James wants on team

The difference between Leonard and free agents is the Lakers would have to give up players and picks to acquire him. We won't rest until we get it right. Surprisingly, he was one of the best rookies this season.

"I'm speechless", said Wagner, who fought back tears after being selected. The Cavs will be among the favorites to reach the NBA Finals if the league's best player chose to stay put for another season.

The Lakers brass knows there's an opportunity to be a contender immediately with the potential moves they can make this summer.

Charlotte president of basketball operations Mitch Kupchak poured cold water on trade talks, telling Steve Reed of the Associated Press: "I don't think it is anybody's goal to lose him in free agency".

The Lakers took Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, a 6-foot-8 sharpshooter out of Kansas, in the second round with the 47 overall pick.

"Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart were actually at Moe Wagner's workout the day he came in", Pelinka said, "and both of them were elbowing (Magic) and I, saying, 'Man, this guy would be fun to play with". It's just the way I'm built.

They traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers midseason, recouping a first round pick they lost in the 2012 Steve Nash sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns.

"You don't get to see the sun", Pelinka said after the NBA Draft on Thursday night. The Sixers used the pick on Villanova's Mikal Bridges before trading him to Phoenix for Texas Tech's Zhaire Smith, who was selected 16th, and a 2021 first-round pick via Miami.

Normally, a trade of this ilk wouldn't be a huge deal. The Lakers have positioned themselves to make a run at LeBron James and Paul George with the ability to create to max contract slots. This summer, more than any in recent memory, will be crucial to the Lakers achieving their goal with Pelinka shedding some light on what the front office is going through as National Basketball Association free agency draws near.

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