'He literally lights up a room': Lakers thrilled to draft Michigan's Wagner
26 June, 2018, 16:49
We won't rest until we get it right.
The Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker has quietly evolved into one of the league's best point guards. Wagner can play with his back to the basket and he is a decent passer. And Luke felt that when we had him in our building that he had off-the-charts basketball IQ.
"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. "But the Lakers got not only a shooter; I can do way more than just shoot".
However, Beilein has taken several athletes who were much less heralded than Wagner out of high school and has molded them into professionals as well.
It will be hard for Wagner and Mykhailiuk - the draft's 25th and 47th picks, respectively - to carve out consistent minutes early into their rookie seasons, but their coaches and teammates are already looking forward to seeing how they fit in.
Wagner was similarly excited to hear his name called by Los Angeles, where he will most likely fit in well due to their style of play. "I am just going to give it all, my 100 percent every day".
This was the first time in five years that the Lakers were not drafting in the lottery.

With only three-four potential openings on their roster going into 2018, free agency notwithstanding, the 76ers simply can't keep five, let alone six players moving forward, and while they could obviously draft a foreign player and stash them overseas, like they did previous year when they traded up to select Latvian center Anzejs Pasecniks 25th overall, those prospects seldom turn into starters, let alone solid role players. The Sixers used the pick on Villanova's Mikal Bridges before trading him to Phoenix for Texas Tech's Zhaire Smith, who was selected 16th, and a 2021 first-round pick via Miami.
While the Los Angeles Lakers have been the betting favorite for weeks now to land LeBron James, NBA insiders have been adamant that there is no clear path for the King this summer.
