Could Moe Wagner Be Headed to the Lakers?

Paul George Le Bron James

The Los Angeles Lakers recently called an organizational meeting to warn all employees about possible tampering ahead of a free-agent signing period in which they are expected to play a key role, with the ability to sign two superstars, sources with knowledge of the meeting told ESPN. According to reports, the Knicks are the preferred destination for Leonard's personal team of advisors and he would be a star in Madison Square Garden.

However, although all of the speculations around the Lakers involves Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James and Paul George, the Lakers could also make some splashes in the draft. And with the 47th pick, the Lakers tabbed 6-8 shooting guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, a Ukrainian native who set a Kansas single-season record with 115 made 3-point field goals. What we noticed in all the games we went to in person is, he is a tremendous passer and great screener in pick-and-roll situations, coached by John Beilein, who is a terrific coach.

Leave it to Adrian Wojnarowski to drop an important piece of Philadelphia 76ers news the eve of the NBA Draft. Knocks on his defense and wingspan put him in the second round, but the Lakers were impressed by his skill in their private workout.

"The game, as you know, requires bigs that can spread the floor".

Regardless of how the Lakers roster looks next season, the franchise is happy with Wagner. The Lakers were the second-worst 3-point shooting team in the National Basketball Association last season.

Wagner grew up in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood of Germany's capital religiously watching National Basketball Association games and even American college hoops.

If the Lakers aren't going to contend next year, why would LeBron go? "And we won't rest until we get it right and I think that's just how Magic and I are built, the rest of our staff, to work until we just get it done".

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

Second-round picks differ from first-round selections in that they don't count against the salary cap.

The Lakers' own pick, No. 10 overall, belonged to Philadelphia as part of the Steve Nash trade in 2012.
