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

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

The Philadelphia 76ers (+1000) seem like a possibility because of last season's success with two young stars and their ability to offer James a max contract in free agency. "That's just the way I'm built, and I know Magic's built the same way and Jeanie [Buss] ultimately, we don't compete to play games, we compete to win championships so there will be a sense of urgency until that's accomplished". The Lakers - who struggled from 3-point range last season (29th out of 30 teams) - surely are enamored with the Ukrainian sharpshooter's blistering 44.4 percent clip from the arc during his senior season.

As a result, the Sixers will make the pick for the Lakers.

"I am a big Kobe fan", Wagner said when asked who he considers to be the greatest Laker in the storied franchise history.

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. Wagner is known as an emotional player and leader, as MI advanced to the NCAA Championship Game with Wagner featuring as an offensive focal point throughout. But executing the Lakers' longtime goal of becoming a title contender this summer still will be no easy task. I think where his family is going to be qualifies the teams.




This was the first time in five years that the Lakers were not drafting in the lottery. Two teams routinely coming up in rumors are the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers received the 25th overall pick alongside Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

The 2018 draft marked the end of the Lakers' penance for the 2012 sign and trade in which they acquired Steve Nash. Now, he is a first-round pick in the National Basketball Association draft and if everything works out, he could be playing with LeBron James next season.

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