Just like we all totally expected, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Michigan big man Moritz Wagner with the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Okay, not really. The Lakers surprised a lot of people with this pick, going with another big man late in the first round.
In the second round, the Lakers dropped another surprise, taking Isaac Bonga out of Germany with the 39th pick, a selection acquired in a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. To round out their 2018 NBA Draft class, the Lakers selected Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk with the No. 47 overall pick.
