According to @MrMichaelLee, the Lakers succeeded in buying a pick, getting No. 46 from WAS and selecting Mizzou guard Jordan Clarkson

More info about the trade.

Not the best shooter from what it seems but that can improve of course. Doubt he will be a true pg being that he was mainly a scorer in college. Seems kinda like a shannon brown type of player.

Didn't think they'd go for a guard honestly

 

Some guys I ball with at the gym look better than him lol

Really really good pick at 46.  If he develops right he will be a solid rotation guy...I like this move

Well, doubt we pursue Lowry

Expect this guy, Kendall and farmar as the veteran, oh yeah and Steve Nash

 

 

So we are spending money on C, SF this season

 

 

Expect us to call Lebron, Melo, ariza, Stephenson and holler at Pau

Clarkson is more of a SG than a PG, imo. Good scorer, but not a true PG. Probably a cheaper version of Bazemore. Still great value at 46 though.

LOL...SB was a 3 in college...his handles were beyond suspect for a guard (even now).  Jordan is a legit guard, possibly a decent combo guard...definitely better than Brown coming out of college...

His jumpshot just needs a bit more work and repetition.

His form reminds me and looks nearly identical to Danny Green so thats not to shabby.
