Reggie Miller on why LeBron might choose the Clippers over the Lakers

Report: Sixers trade 39th pick in NBA draft to Lakers - Philly

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday that the Lakers acquired the No. 39 pick in the draft from the Philadelphia 76ers. Although it was uncertain what the storied franchise would do with their picks with so much speculation about a potential Kawhi Leonard trade, the team ultimately decided address needs in shooting department with the additions of Moritz Wagner and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk. James owns multiple homes in the area, and it has been rumored that LeBron James Jr.is set to play high school basketball in Los Angeles. "When you build a team, you have to have pillars that you build on".

Thursday night's draft came a little more than a week before what could be the Lakers' most important free agency period since Shaquille O'Neal signed in 1996.

As a result, the Sixers will make the pick for the Lakers. "We felt like with the two players that we selected tonight in the draft that we added shooting and guys that know how to play the game the right way". But executing the Lakers' longtime goal of becoming a title contender this summer still will be no easy task.

Several important things to note about the logistics behind the trade.




"We feel he's going to be a special, special player".

I could see him moreso playing for the Clippers than I would the Lakers. "So really any road we go down we're really confident in but obviously for Lakers fans we want to be good, we want to be back in the playoffs where Lakers deserve to be and competing for a championship". "This is a question where I can't win".

It will be hard for Wagner and Mykhailiuk - the draft's 25th and 47th picks, respectively - to carve out consistent minutes early into their rookie seasons, but their coaches and teammates are already looking forward to seeing how they fit in.
