The Lakers were able to make a trade before the draft with the Philadelphia 76ers for the 39th overall pick in exchange for the Lakers' 2019 second-round pick via the Chicago Bulls and cash, according to Wojnarowski. Should Lopez leave, Wagner could help offset the 112 3-pointers he made last season.

What they say: Standing near 7 feet, Wagner's ace shooting from behind the arc will make him a likely stretch-four for the Lakers.

As is usually the case, undrafted players tend to agree to Summer League contracts with certain teams immediately after the draft.

Much like his Kansas teammate Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk who was the Lakers' final draft pick, as well as their first round pick Moritz Wagner, Newman is a great shooter, hitting 41.5 percent from 3-point range previous year. "I think I got to go with Kobe, especially since he stayed there for his entire career".

"We're building a culture here, and (Wagner) brings a lot to the table", Walton said.

He topped the scoring charts of the South American World Cup qualifying stage, netting ten goals in their 18 games. With a victory, Uruguay could reach the next stage with a game in hand against host Russian Federation on June 25.

As well he should, having risen from skinny European to first round draft pick in three years under head coach John Beilein.

"Growing up, I was a huge National Basketball Association fan".

Sources: Undrafted Kansas guard Malik Newman has agreed to a two-way contract with the Los Angeles 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". "I am just going to give it all, my 100 percent every day".

He led MI to the National Championship game and scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in a Final Four win over Loyola.

"I'm very familiar with [the Lakers]".
