Could Moe Wagner Be Headed to the Lakers?

Betting world going crazy for LeBron-Kawhi Lakers union

This summer, more than any in recent memory, will be crucial to the Lakers achieving their goal with Pelinka shedding some light on what the front office is going through as National Basketball Association free agency draws near. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that no players were discussed and that there was no further dialogue between the two teams with talks not going far. With room under the salary cap to sign two free agents to max contracts, L.A. has their eyes set on both LeBron James and Paul George.

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka was especially thrilled with how the picks played out and specifically credited the organization's scouting department for their help in the process.

The draft is only a few minutes from getting underway and there could be a little more clarity once it's over.

Ultimately, that trade never happened as the San Antonio Spurs reportedly shut the door on any possible trade talks with the Los Angeles Lakers.

After drafting shooters Mo Wagner and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk in the draft, the team can now put all their focus into free agency which gets underway on July 1. The organization hopes to fix its relationship with the team's best player, whom Gregg Popovich indicated might even be better than James when he was last fully healthy.

The Pacers will decline Stephenson's $4.36 million team option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent.

"I haven't even gone through a season yet, and they've already proven everything on my check list (that) I can check off", George said then.

Pelinka also offered high praise for first-round pick Wagner, who checks off all the boxes in what the Lakers look for in a player.

Leonard wants to be traded to Los Angeles, preferably to the Lakers, sources have told ESPN, leaving Pelinka and team president Magic Johnson in an enviable position of being a desired location for stars. Moritz Wagner, the big man out of MI, was one out of many young players looking to get drafted.

The Celtics don't have to make any big moves this season.

The Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker has quietly evolved into one of the league's best point guards. Here are the 2018 NBA Draft grades for the Los Angeles Lakers.
