Paul George could be crucial to the Lakers getting who they want this summer

Paul George could be crucial to the Lakers getting who they want this summer

Randle, who just wrapped his fourth year in the league, is not a shooting threat.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added his voice to the James situation and specifically the possibility of him with the Lakers.

Wagner averaged 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game and sot 39.4 percent from 3-point range as a junior.

Wagner isn't a great defender and like Love, he probably never will be. Pelinka mentioned how Wagner's "spirit" and "charisma" positively affects his teammates.

First, the Sixers have head coach Brett Brown, who has a history with Leonard.

"When you build a team, you have to have pillars that you build on", Pelinka said. For us we are sticking to those core principles, which are guys that are high IQ basketball player that play the game the right way and can shoot and have length and have versatility and play with toughness. Guard Devonte Graham was drafted then traded to Charlotte with the 34th pick. 25 and 47 picks in the draft, so this gives them another second rounder. Cleveland was once considered to be close to on par with Los Angeles in terms of their chances of signing James, but the 2018 NBA Finals didn't help the Cavs' cause. In addition to Randle and Lopez, the Lakers typically started Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Brandon Ingram. The deal is far from a blockbuster, but could be important for the Lakers' process of attempting to attract superstars like LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard. Youngmisuk didn't just insinuate that Wagner is the type of athletic big that the Lakers are looking for.

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.
