A Los Angeles Lakers website thinks they know who the Lakers plan to pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft.
Could Moe Wagner Be Headed to the Lakers?
Moe Wagner would look good in purple and gold.
And that’s precisely how one Los Angeles Lakers website sees it playing out.
On Thursday, fansite Lakers Nation noted that the Lakers had accumulated yet another second-round pick, 39th overall from Philadelphia. Currently owning the 25th pick overall, along with the 47th, the signature franchise in Los Angeles is in a good position to either stand pat at 25, or even move up and get a guy it really wants.
And according to the site, that player might be former Michigan big Moe Wagner.
The site noted a tweet from ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk — ironically a former MSU Spartan — from the night before. Youngmisuk didn’t just insinuate that Wagner is the type of athletic big that the Lakers are looking for.
The Lakers have also seemed to have taken a liking to Wagner, who the team has worked out this offseason.
Lakers Nation did an interview with Wagner after his workout, which you can watch below:
