Lakers Select Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk With Draft's 47th Pick

Paul George

Since losing Game 7, Chris Paul has reportedly been recruiting LeBron to Houston, to the point of disregarding his own free agency decision to make things happen according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. "I had a couple workouts there and was [in step with] the staff and the players; it was a good atmosphere over there", Wagner told reporters during a post-draft conference call. Even after the trade with the Lakers, the Sixers still have two first round selections with the 10th and 26th picks, along with three second round selections with the 38th, 56th and 60th picks.

The Lakers, in need of perimeter shooting, now have a fiery big who shot 39.4 percent from 3-point range over the past two seasons, draining 108 3s during that span.

The Lakers stayed in Europe during the second round and used the 47th overall pick on Svi Mykhailiuk, Kansas' Ukrainian outside shooting whiz.

"Growing up, I was a huge National Basketball Association fan".

"Selecting Moe Wagner was a big target for Magic", Pelinka said. "It's a dream very, very far away when you're over there, and it's exciting to be here now".

Mykhailiuk was an outstanding outside shooter for the Jayhawks' Final Four team, scoring 14.6 points per game while hitting 115 total 3-pointers. Right now, they have 11 players under contract for next season.

"When you build a team, you have to have pillars that you build on", Pelinka said.

Thanks to some of the moves made in Thursday's draft, Philadelphia put themselves in better position to possibly pull off a trade involving Leonard. "I am going to love it and leave it all out there [for the Lakers]".
