The Los Angeles Lakers made some waves in the build-up to the 2018 NBA Draft, trading a future second-round pick and cash to the Philadelphia 76ers for the 39th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
The move gives the Lakers a trio of draft picks and opens up a host of possibilities whether it be through drafting players themselves, combining the picks to trade up for a player (potentially Zhaire Smith) or packaging the picks with Luol Deng to shed the contract.
With all those possibilities on the line and more, our team gets together for our now-annual podcast mock draft. Not only do we talk about the Lakers’ upcoming picks, the trade to acquire a second-round pick and what it could mean for the future, but we also go through the entire first round via rotating, mock draft fashion.
