Michigan Basketball: Could Moe Wagner be the Lakers Kevin Love?

Michigan Basketball: Could Moe Wagner be the Lakers Kevin Love?

The Los Angeles Lakers selected Moritz Wagner with the No. 25 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Immediately after getting the message, the Lakers, the Rockets and Sixers signified their interest in landing the much-touted best player in the world in their roster. "I think I got to go with Kobe, especially since he stayed there for his entire career".

Depending on how hard general manager Rob Pelinka wants to push the matter, he may be able to eventually break the San Antonio Spurs' resolve on Kawhi Leonard as well. The club should try to trade away at least two or three more picks.

"When you build a team, you have to have pillars that you build on", Pelinka said.

"They obviously are a very flashy franchise", Wagner said. So whether other teams want to participate in that or not, we can't control [that].




ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added his voice to the James situation and specifically the possibility of him with the Lakers. That deal won't be announced until later due to a moratorium.

The Los Angeles Lakers are the odds-on favorites to sign LeBron James this offseason. They also have their own restricted free agent, Julius Randle, to worry about after determining whether they can land their star targets.

The Los Angeles Lakers had a formidable starting frontcourt last season with Julius Randle and Brook Lopez.

If the Lakers aren't going to contend next year, why would LeBron go?

"It feels like the last several weeks have just been a constant planning sessions, moving the chess board around with all the different options", Pelinka said. "I am just going to give it all, my 100 percent every day". Even if he doesn't, the two-way contract would allow him to get playing time both with the Nets, and with the team's G-League affiliate.
