Lakers attempt to add another first-round draft pick

Al Diaz  TNS

The Suns now hold the No. 4 pick, and are willing to trade up to get it, according to ESPN's Chad Ford (as interpreted by Arizonasports.com).

The Los Angeles Lakers have done their due diligence on a number of top prospects leading up to the NBA Draft, but it would still be a surprise if they selected anyone other than Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick.

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are no strangers to success, which was recently recounted in a documentary about their strong rivalry in the 80's. 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.

It remains to be seen if the Pistons are interested in any of those players, but as they try to move on from Reggie Jackson at point guard, Russell or Clarkson would likely be the best fit. "Who are they after?"

Magic Johnson, president of basketball operations, and general manager Rob Pelinka were the only representatives of the Lakers to attend Friday's workout, according to ESPN. The Lakers, Jazz, and Kings are the other three teams with multiple first-round picks. Seemingly, the choice comes down to whether the Lakers prefer Ball as a play-maker for the future or Jackson as an athletic wing player that can play defense and hopefully develop his shot. LA has been going out of their way to do their due diligence and give the illusion that they aren't set on drafting Ball, but I'm hearing they still plan to take him.

Ball, 19, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds over 36 games in his lone season with the Bruins in 2016-17.
