I'd say the 2nd Round prospects the Lakers should look at and work out are Tim Hardaway Jr, Glen Rice Jr. and Peyton Silva.

The Jr.s most likely wont be there that late... Silva is quick but doesn't have that jumper..

Got this from my other frequented Laker Forum Blog. Silver Screen and Roll
http://www.silverscr...or-contributors

Article goes over lots of potential picks; Kenny Kadji, Eric Murphy, Ryan Kelly, Grant Jerrett, Brandon Paul, and others.

Some Euros to consider:

 

- Dennis Schröder (6'2 PG)

- Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'9 PG)

- Alex Abrines (6'6 SG/SF) http://nbadraft.net/...rs/alex-abrines

- Sergey Karasev (6'7 SG/SF) http://nbadraft.net/.../sergey-karasev

- Livio Jean-Charles (6'9 SF/PF) http://nbadraft.net/...io-jean-charles

- Dario Saric (6210 PF) http://nbadraft.net/...ers/dario-saric

- Rudy Gobert (7'2 C) http://nbadraft.net/...ers/rudy-gobert

- Lucas Nogueira (7'0 C) http://nbadraft.net/.../lucas-nogueira

 

 

I want us to get Schröder, if not Giannis, but I'm almost sure that we are gonna waste that 2nd round pick on some no name Nigerian.

Schroder got a guarantee in the first round and shut down all workouts... Via he combine..

Giannis is also a first round pick.. Atleast that's what mocks are saying

I hope some team wants to trade out of the 1st round for cap space

Just give me the best perimeter defender available at our pick..

^ that is the same type of loser mentality we had in draft for years.

Yeah I know but they might slip 10 places or so. Spurs are behind us so we are at least safe there!

Brandon Paul would be a STEAL but I highly doubt he goes second round

Elaborate

We drafted [expletive] tier D-League talent instead of drafting European players and have them player ovearseas for couple of years and develop. What would have changed if didn't draft Darius Odom-Johson? We even paid 500k for that pick.

If Saric falls to us,yes please. But he will ver likely be drafted in first 25 if he does decide to stay on draft board. He has a rare seen high basketball IQ,can play  1-4,but needs to work on his shot and defense. But could be better than Kukoc. 

Schroder will go early. Karasev,also,1st round for him.


Impossible is nothing.

The next Dennis Rodman? in.gif

nba_draft_134.jpg
UPDATE: Last week, we wrote about an overlooked player with a similar skill set to Dennis Rodman -- Colorado's undersized forward, Andre Roberson. Can the high-energy rebounder follow in the footsteps of The Worm and stick in the league long-term, even if on a lesser scale? That remains to be seen, but ESPN Insider Kevin Pelton writes today that Roberson is the most underrated prospect in the draft. Here's Pelton with more below.

---

Dennis Rodman was listed at 6-foot-8, 220 pounds at the end of his 14-year playing career. Andre Roberson, who left Colorado a year early to enter next month's NBA draft, is listed at 6-foot-7, 210 pounds.

This isn't to say that Roberson will have anywhere close to the same type of pro career that "The Worm" had in the late 1980s through the 1990s, but the similarities in their game go well beyond their stature on the court. Like Rodman, Roberson is a tenacious rebounder with a relentless motor, and though he's projected to be a second-round pick next month there's a chance this one skill could translate well at the next level.

Roberson was voted the Pac-12 defensive player of the year and ranking second nationally with 11.2 rebounds per game this past season, and as a sophomore the undersized forward yanked down 11.1 boards per contest. The only problem is, rebounding is Roberson's only strength. He's not a shooter or a slasher or a creator or a distributor. That's why he's working out with the power forwards -- not the small forwards -- at the NBA combine. What he could potentially be, though, is a Rodman type who carves out a long NBA career by taking full advantage of his one big-time skill - attacking the glass.

How about this guy. He's 6'7'' and can defend multiple positions and he is projected to be a late second-round pick.

I remember hearing something on espn radio about trading Gasol for the Cavs first pick. It was rationalized that since the draft is so weak this year, that the Cavs will just look to stabilize their front court and Gasol is still a very serviceable big man. I would love it if the lakers would be able to pick up an Otto Porter or Trey Burke.

Cleveland wouldn't just burn team jerseys for that trade, but they'd also light Dan Gilbert's son on fire.

 

The Cavs are still in a rebuild.  Gasol's expiring really doesn't help them, at all, compared to Nerlens Noel.

Erick Green-NCAA scoring leader. Good size. Underrated. Hope he falls to us.

Having a player who has one NBA skill would be nice... he could come in and rebound... the next reggie evans?

How about this guy. He's 6'7'' and can defend multiple positions and he is projected to be a late second-round pick.

I would think that Waiters,Pau, and Andy would be a nice group around Kyrie, but not for the 1st overall pick.
I would love a "bust" like Tyreke Evans or John Wall or a few Bobcats like Bismack, Henderson and a high pick for Pau
