Jordan Henriquez only averaged 16 mins in his last season and didn't really do much. 

 

Norvel Pelle was inellgible for college. Idk why. Couldnt find it. Though he doesn't seem like anything special.

 

Josiah Turner seems like a problem. ALready has a DUI and got suspended indefinitely. Cant find much about him. 

 

 

They all seem like scrubs. From what it seems they are all gonna be undrafted.

LAL has the No. 48 pick in the draft, and could go PG if they buy out Duhon and don't re-sign Morris. Turner certainly has NBA talent

Lol Josiah Turner. That's my boy, but man...

He could've been a lot better. Should've never left Arizona. Was the top player out here, just needs to get his [expletive] together. Love it if we'd got him.

Norvelle Pelle is a 7'0 athletic freak center. He plays base off athleticism. No way he will fall in the second round.

From what I have seen of Josiah Turner he is a pure point guard. Has decent size at 6'3" and has good athleticism and speed. Possesses nice vision and ability to find teammates. Shows an ability to penetrate inside and attack the basket and also finishes well at the rim. Defensively he seems a very capable defender. As McMenamin
said in his tweet he has NBA talent. Now the question marks on him are he is not a very good outside shooter and he may have personal issues or problems highlighted by his Arizona stint where he was suspended and convicted of
DUI. I think he has the tools to play in the NBA but he needs to mature mentally and show FO's he has put these previous issues behind him. Also making further improvements to his shooting will better his chances. I think if we had got that Grizzlies pick towards the end of the draft he may have been worth a punt on with nothing to lose. With only the 48th pick I think we may be able to pick up a better option going on alot of the mock drafts I've seen so far.

Doesn't really look too impressive to me.

 

Honestly, don't expect the Lakers to use this draft pick on someone that will be added to the roster.  They will either draft internationally and store him there for a couple of seasons, or just trade the pick away.

 

Only way I see the Lakers drafting someone is if they move up into the first round / early second round.

Josiah Turner... 

Thing is this... he has off the court problems that could deter attention away from his talent.

We don't need another Ebanks or Crittenton(washingtonversion) which means(wasted potential because of off the court problems).

What does RD know about them? I haven't kept tabs on college ball like I usually have.

That would be a first.

Mitch is most likely just looking at those guys to see if they may be worth bringing in as training camp fodder.

Shop Pau during the first round.

I've been saying they need to find a team in this lottery that loves Pau enough to give up that pick...Minny & Toronto immediately come to mind

 

We need Trey Burke or Victor Oladipo
