The Lakers have had discussions with at least two teams in the lottery in the hopes of trying to improve their outside shooting and perimeter defense, ESPN reported Monday.
Many expect the Los Angeles Lakers to draft UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft, and rumor has it that Ball might be welcoming a superstar to L.A.in 2018.
The Suns now hold the fourth overall selection, but as noted in ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford's most recent mock draft, they would prefer not to stay there. The Pacers, of course, would prefer to get something for George in a trade rather than see him walk away with no compensation for the team. "I told him, 'Point guard.' He was like, 'All right, if you're going to play point guard, you've got to get the ball up'".
Will Lonzo Ball, of Chino Hills and UCLA, be the pick or does Magic Johnson and the Lakers have their eyes on another prospect? Published reports indicate the Clippers, Houston, Cleveland and Washington also have engaged in trade proposals with in regarding George. There, Ball showcased the training regimen that he and his father, LaVar, have overseen in recent years.

The Oakland A's used the sixth overall pick on outfielder Austin Beck of North Davidson High School in Lexington, N.C. Additionally, 2017 marks the 34th time overall, and the sixth straight season, the Twins have selected in the top 15.
"They need a leader", Ball said after working out for the Lakers recently. Trading the pick could be in the Lakers' best interest short term in attracting free agents. For instance, Fultz- evidently the draft's best player coming out this year, won a total of nine games during his freshman campaign at Washington and just two conference games in the top-heavy, and ultimately weak PAC 12 Conference.
Young is likely to seek a more lucrative contract with a playoff-bound team, and the Lakers would like to preserve salary-cap flexibility for the 2018 offseason. "At the end the of the day, you are still going to play basketball". But what really made the pass special when is it went through the window of a moving auto driven by his father, LaVar, with his youngest brother LaMelo in the passenger seat.
