Philadelphia received the Lakers 2019 second round pick via the Chicago Bulls, along with cash. Newman will join Kansas teammate Svi Mykhailiuk with the Lakers, selected 47th overall in Thursday's draft.

If one of LeBron's best friends realizes that LBJ wants to play for the Lakers, maybe the rest of us should as well. "We're sticking to those core principles, which are guys that are high-IQ basketball players, that play the game the right way, that can shoot, that have length, that have versatility, that play with toughness".

"He might be the best pick-and-pop player in this draft, which is something the Lakers could definitely use", Lakers.com reporter Joey Ramirez said. Kyle Kuzma, who made the All-Rookie Team, and Josh Hart were part-time starters.

"If you have success in any walk of life, you're going to face that", Pelinka said.

Wagner played in the youth system of German pro team ALBA Berlin before MI coach John Beilein traveled to Europe on a one-day recruiting trip and persuaded him to head for Ann Arbor.

If we are to go far, we have to win games like that and teams who do well need last-minute goals or last-minute saves. All this being said, if you're somewhat put down by the lack of hype for the World Cup in Norwich, just go to a pub.


"I am a big Kobe fan", Wagner said when asked who he considers to be the greatest Laker in the storied franchise history.

The Michigan product, though, likes how the current Lakers are trying to play as fast as the Showtime Lakers did.

The Lakers don't want to get into any trouble during this year's free agency period. Wagner, 21, averaged 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds and shot 52.8 percent from the field last season while earning second-team All Big-Ten honors. "So I think it worked out pretty well, and I'm very excited to be in this position".

Newman chose to declare for the draft following a terrific string of performances in the NCAA National Tournament in which he put up 24.5 points in four games from the second round until the Final Four round. "Dirk (Nowitzki) had a huge impact on that, just being a player that made it, a player that did incredible things in the league, and also being a player that was under the radar for a long time, and just this skinny kid from Germany, similar to me".
