Promised him a workout? Or promised him they'd draft him?

That they'd draft him.

Here's an article HoopsWorld ran on him in November:

Mitch is a bigger idiot than I thought if he does this. The kid shot 25% from 3pt range and put up 8 pts a game. No. 41 are you kidding? He is not even rated in the top 100 prospects on Draftexpress. Ben Hansbrough is ten times the player this guy is and I could come with at least 60 other guys. The Lakers could pick him up a free agent after the draft because he would not have been even drafted. :bang:
When are the Lakers going to fire Mitch?

It's a second round pick. We have four of them this season... he's a tall PG who seems like a hard worker. He has a 6'10'' wingspan. Why not take a risk?

You take a risk with the 58th pick not the 41st. :bang:

Thanks JSM, I actually read that right after you posted this thread.

Pros from that write up:
- Diversity. He's a very big PG and he's played some inside positions.
- Pass first. The kid wasn't the best scorer, but that many assists can't lie.

Cons
- Shooting. He's a passer, not a shooter. Can he develop that three ball?

"The other rumored promise making the rounds is that the Los Angeles Lakers have committed to drafting Texas-El Paso's Julyan Stone with the 41st overall pick according to Draft Express. If that's true, new head coach Mike Brown won't have a say on it."

^ And that's why it's a rumor, not a statement.

Not to mention that Julyan Stone has denied this rumor himself.

When he makes a sting of detrimental decisions? I'm sure you didn't complain about our winning back to back titles based on Mitch's deals, right?

The Lakers won back to back because of Kobe not Mitch. The Lakers won in spite of Mitch not because of him. Giving Walton a five year deal and Fisher two is still killing the Lakers. Don't talk to me about Gasol because that deal was all West and everyone knows it. A no. 1 pick plus Sasha for .....Joe Smith and then it was a month too late. Yea Mitch is a f...ing genius.

Whatthef are you talking about?

Look at our roster. 3 finals in a row with flexibility to make a big superstar move for the future and now contention. Yeah, the guy sucks.

i think the lakers have earned a little latitude in terms of second round picks. in recent years, they've gotten wafer, turiaf and ebanks in the second round. i'm willing to let things play out before i cheer or condemn a pick.

and i'll certainly wait until an actual pick is made.

^ I feel we'll make some sort of small splash in the 2nd round. Maybe use #41 and #46 to move up to the mid 30's?

If anyone still cared about this guy...according to Alex Kennedy, he's going to be in camp with the Heat.

I guess I rained on your parade! :man1:

Who knew Mitch could find two guys worse than Stone to draft with the last two picks.
Since Mitch passed on him I am sure he will be all-rookie team with the Heat now. :man4:
