Next years draft
If the Lakers are going to end up 12th in the west, Where do they end up in next years draft and who do they take?
Don't think they'll end up as 12th in the West but if they do I see them getting a point guard.
Maybe Marcus Smart, Semaj Christion or Andew Harrison in the lottery.
@JamesBaker3195 where do you see them ending up? and will they even be that bad to end up in the lottery?
The Lakers might blow the whole thing up after this year. If so, then they can either try to build through the draft or use their lottery pick as a sweetener in a trade.
If they do finish in the 7-12 range then I would look at Mitch McGary, Gary Harris, Glen Robinson III and then whichever one-and-done guy falls.
They might even be better off trading down. If they are rebuilding then the guys to build around will be in the top 5. If they can't get a top 5 pick then they need to stockpile young talent. I like some of the Louisville guys to build around. Chane Behanan, Russ Smith, and Luke Hancock would be good. And the Lakers can get those guys a little bit later in the draft.
The Lakers are in need in almost every position, i say where ever they land they pick the best player available, this draft is being called the best since the 03 draft
