The Lakers aren’t going to sit and wait around for players to sign with them this season, they are actively going out to get some.
According to ESPN, Los Angeles has acquired the No. 39 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft from the 76ers for a 2019 second-round pick.
Orton barely played as a collegian, getting only 13 minutes per game on Kentucky’s Elite Eight team in 2009-He entered the draft against the advice of his college coaches, and the Magic took a flyer on Orton because of his size and length. He wasn’t big enough to last very long in the league. He missed his rookie year because of a knee injury. He has been signed and waived by two teams since leaving the Magic and has played overseas. He didn’t last long in the Philippines, either. He played three games there and was sent home after charging officials with making a mockery of the game and calling boxer Manny Pacquiao’s experiment Danielle Hunter Womens Jersey with playing basketball a joke.
Giddens was a surprising choice as a first-rounder given that he never was a high-end shooter as a college player. At 6-5, he made only 35 percent of his http://www.officialvikingslockerroom.com/elite-danielle-hunter-jersey college 3-point tries in four seasons at Kansas and New Mexico. He bounced between the NBA and D-League a few times but played only 38 games and 247 Erik Johnson Youth Jersey minutes at the highest level.
It’s the kind of lucky draft-day break the Celtics would get when Red Auerbach was running the team, which might explain why, when Danny Ainge emerged from the team’s war room, he was two inches shorter, lost three inches off his hairline and sounded like Peter Falk when he spoke.
Nets general manager Sean Marks is a native of New Zealand, and he selected high-scoring wing Dzanan Musa, a native of Bosnia, in the first round. Marks then picked Rodions Kurucs, a native of Latvia, in the second round.
These are high-value picks, but that’s a lot of international influence in an American sport and suffice it to say, Kevin McHale is not happy.
The 6-7 wing is at his best generating offense off the catch and beating closeouts. There’s not a ton of upside here for Chicago, but Hutchison is a solid piece.
Although the Pacers need a point guard, it’s hard for me to get excited about http://www.officialavalancheonlineshops.com/Red+Erik+Johnson+Jersey this pick for Indiana. Holiday will obviously have a good idea of what it takes to succeed in the league, but his on-court skill set and lack of size is concerning.
