Sixers trade the 39th pick to Lakers

May JohnsonJun 23, 2018

"He might be the best pick-and-pop player in this draft, which is something the Lakers could definitely use", Lakers.com reporter Joey Ramirez said. Lakers will send Philly its 2019 second round pick via Bulls and cash.

Just under 7 feet tall, Wagner's 3-point prowess forced opposing bigs to abandon the paint and guard him on the perimeter, opening the court up for his teammates.

Wagner said he grew up influenced by Germany's greatest National Basketball Association product, Dirk Nowitzki, but that he also liked Kevin Garnett's game.

Still, the Lakers won't find teams eager to help them land two max stars when free agency begins July 1. "What we noticed in all the games we went to in person was that (Wagner) is a tremendous passer, great screener in pick-and-roll situations". His 38 percent 3-point mark isn't bad either.

If the Lakers aren't going to contend next year, why would LeBron go? I think where his family is going to be qualifies the teams.

He added: "When we succeed with Argentina , everyone takes credit for it but when Argentina loses, it's always Leo's fault. It's important to take advantage of the spaces which MESSI generates when there's two or three players on him".

During Carroll's five-year OSU career, he played for three coaches. Newman will join Kansas teammate Svi Mykhailiuk with the Lakers, selected 47th overall in Thursday's draft.

The 2018 draft marked the end of the Lakers' penance for the 2012 sign and trade in which they acquired Steve Nash. With Kawhi Leonard reportedly hoping to play in Los Angeles, the Lakers will be busy exhausting all avenues to significantly improve their roster.

Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man.

With the free-agent world revolving around LeBron James, everyone is waiting for the dominoes to fall on NBA Draft night, and while a minor move, the Lakers may have gotten the ball rolling with the acquisition of the pick.
