Well the only workouts we will see scheduled while we are in the finals will be for bubble 2nd round-undrafted players. I'm expecting a lot of seniors, as usual. No small guards. And hopefully no SFs in that range because they'd be nothing more than a bench player and we have plenty of backup SFs as it is.

Any 1st rounders we work out, if we do, then it will be after the finals when we can discuss trades. And even then it will be tough to get an agent to let his player come out here unless we can give him serious reason to think we aren't wasting their time.

JSM you may have answered this in a different post but who is 2-4 players you would like to possibly see Lakers take at 58. Thanks in advance

1) Bryce Taylor (Oregon, SG): A heady jack of all trades. Definitely would be Phil's pick based on what is in that area right now.
2) Othello Hunter (Ohio St., PF): What he lacks in height he makes up for in length and athleticism, had a fantastic pre-draft camp.
3) James Mays (Clemson, PF): If Hunter's stock continues to go up, he'd be the best big available.

Undrafted target: Marcus Dove (Oklahoma St., SF): one of the best perimeter defenders in college basketball.

Which way we go could give a decent indication of who Mitch is the most worried about walking this summer. If he goes with a guard, he might think Sasha is packing up. Same thing with a big and Ronny.

no chance of getting overseas talent and stashing him there, somebody like Nicolo Pekovic (spelling) who's stock is falling because there is serious concern he wants to stay overseas right now...

I would have to put my money on Mitch drafting a center. Mbenga, in my opinion, won't be re-sign and Ronny will eventually be moved back to PF. So basically we got Mihm backing up Drew next season.

Also, if Mitch and company are not intent on signing a Kurt Thomas or a center of with a defensive history, I think it's more than ever likely Mitch heads the direction of drafting a big.

I watched Hunter at Orlando and couldn't agree more. The kid is much better prospect than he showed at Ohio State. Thanks for the answer. The only thing about a center Radner is may not be a decent one there at 58 but there will be a PF or 2G there who can eventually help. I agree with what you are saying on backup center and that is why it wouldn't completely shock me if Lakers went for one in free agency. I would give anything if they could get Kurt Thomas in free agency. I doubt it happens but I wouldn't be shocked to see them bring back Kwame.

Gary Forbes added.

He was the pre-draft camp MVP.

Interesting we are working him out considering his stock shot through the roof after the camp and now he's an early 2nd round projection.

JSM I read somewhere a few weeks ago Minny would like to trade its first pick of the second round for a similar pick in 09. With what you just said on Forbes, think LA might offer Charlotte pick in 09 for that pick from Minny? Any chance of that? Thanks. I hope you know how much we appreciate the updates.

It's really tough to get a read on the Lakers off-season.

Limited roster space and several bench players in flux--Karl, Sasha, DJ, Ronny, Ira.

Then it's unknown what we will do with Yue this summer.

I couldn't see the Lakers adding a 2nd rounder this year. They don't have the roster space to add two rookies in the 2nd round. There aren't any Euros in the late 2nd round worth taking and stashing. So if they are moving up in the 2nd round, I would imagine it would be the 58th pick + the Cats 2nd rounder next year. Theoretically they could trade up, stash a Euro with one of the Wolves picks, and then draft a keeper at 58. Pekovic could be a nice triangle fit in a couple years.

That is what I figured. Thanks and I just hope they get one of those 3 kids you mentioned at 58 or Mbah a Moute who probably won't fall there. Sonny Weems is a good one here but Lakers don't need him.

Yeah the game he had against Indiana and Gordon in first round of Big Dance pretty much assured he wouldn't be there when Lake Show picks. I like the 3 kids you mentioned earlier and I sit with James Anderson (Oklahoma State) at an AAU tournament the other day (his younger brother plays for Arkansas Wings). He thinks Dove will be a good pickup for someone too.

Rodrigue Beaubois added.

Doubt he comes out until next year. Unless he has phenomenal workouts or gets a first round promise (which won't happen), I don't see him sticking in this year's draft.

Beaubois is who I put on another thread I would love to see Lakers draft and let play for the D-Fenders a year or two. Heard he is very good defender. Hate to hear he won't stay in draft, but that makes sense since there is a chance he might not even be drafted.

Lakers had 4 SGs in yesterday (or players who would have to start off their NBA career at SG). Joe Crawford, George Hill, Bryce Taylor, and Reggie Williams.

Crawford and Williams are both known for their scoring abilities. What I don't like about Williams is his shooting mechanics, not sure how successful he'll be able to be at the NBA level until he really works on his shot. And he's a twig. He's only 190 pounds, his playing style won't transfer to the NBA until he adds 15 pounds.

Hill was a PG at the collegiate level but probably would have to slide over to SG until his handles improved.

I really like Taylor and I'm glad the Lakers brought him in. Check out this report on him over at Draft Express, Don MacLean had some really good things to say about him.

PGs and wing players- that is what we are looking at. I guess they are preparing for Fisher to leave in a season or two. Or does it mean they don't have much confidence in Farmar. As for the wings- it could mean they are preparing for Odom to depart or Sasha to depart...

I don't think it is point guards as much as shooting guards and wings. I think it isn't they are so much unhappy with anyone as those are positions where best players should be available at 58. Most serviceable big men and true point guards will be gone at that pick as well as most power forwards. Shooting guards and wings you can get some decent ones as undrafted free agents. Coby Karl wasn't drafted last year and he was good enough to make the team. JSM may have a different take on all this but that is mine. Will be interested to see what he says. I love Club Lakers but this is my favorite part of it....this forum leading up to the draft.

The only true PGs you will have in this range are either ones with a sketchy past or ones that aren't able to start for a team. If a team is certain he will be nothing more than a career backup at best (Singletary, Butler come to mind).

The only true centers are projects or Euros and if it's a Euro who thinks he will be in this range, he'll drop out for a more secure position in next year's draft. Hoping the workouts from this year put him on team's radar for next season. So most Euros late in the draft either got a guarantee or dropped.

SGs and SFs are usually available because those come a dime a dozen in the NBA and in the draft. While you can find a steal and one might excel in one aspect of the game where he can make a name for himself, none of them are going to be future all-stars.

From the looks of it the Lakers are taking looks at SGs and possibly a couple of them who could convert to a triangle PG (like Hill).

Mays and Hunter are two power forwards I forgot that might be available and you mentioned them yesterday. I am afraid Hunter has played himself up higher than Lakers will draft, but maybe not.
