How the Lakers’ lottery picks since 2014 all ended up elsewhere

The Lakers also gave up much of their future draft control to the Pelicans in the most recent trade, meaning they’re unlikely to mine significant talent through the draft in coming years – perhaps a necessary cost of gaining a transcendent star like Davis, but a cost nonetheless.Here’s a timeline of how the Lakers’ bounty of draft choices ended up elsewhere, with course-changing events highlighted and notations for opportunities seized or missed:June 2014: The Lakers pick Julius Randle from Kentucky at No. 7 overall after falling one spot in the draft lottery. General Manager Mitch Kupchak says Randle was ranked higher than his draft position on the Lakers’ board.“He’s a player that will blend well in Los Angeles,” Kupchak says on ESPN. “He competes hard, he plays hard, and he loves contact. Great kid.”The 2014 draft turned out to be a relatively weak draft: Only two players, Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic, selected in 2014 have gone on to become All-Stars. Notable players selected after Randle include Zach LaVine, Jusuf Nurkic, Clint Capela, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jokic. October 2014: Against the Houston Rockets in his NBA debut, Randle breaks his leg. He goes on to miss the entire season with the injury, adding to the Lakers’ injury woes that year which include Kobe Bryant tearing his rotator cuff. The Lakers win just 21 games.June 2015: The Lakers pick No. 2 (moving up in the draft lottery) and select D’Angelo Russell from Ohio State.“At No. 2 you hope to get a player who has All-Star capability, and we think we did,” Kupchak said. “He is young. He’s got gifts you can really work long and hard on and still not acquire those gifts. Some of them you’re just born with, or somebody just sprinkles a little gold dust on you and it’s just there.”Only two other players from the 2015 draft have gone on to become All-Stars, and only Kristaps Porzingis (now with the Dallas Mavericks) was picked behind Russell. Other notable players picked behind Russell in the draft include Myles Turner and Devin Booker.March 2016: Russell and teammates have a public falling out over a leaked video of teammate Nick Young. While not a total expression of Russell’s reception in the locker room, the incident continues to affect the perception of Russell throughout his Lakers tenure – some outsiders call for him to be traded right away.June 2016: After a 17-win season and Bryant’s retirement, the Lakers wind up with the No. 2 pick and select Brandon Ingram from Duke. Kupchak calls Ingram’s comparisons to Kevin Durant as “unfair” but says “the similarities are striking.” One of the pre-draft evaluations Kupchak mentions at the podium is that Ingram seemed to get along with Randle, Russell, Larry Nance, Jordan Clarkson and other young members of the team at a dinner event.“We look at him and his age and his body type, his willingness to work and be coached,” Kupchak said. “So we think the upside, and the potential in him – we think right now there is no ceiling on him.”To date, only No. 1 pick Ben Simmons has made the All-Star Game from this draft. Other notable picks behind Ingram include Jaylen Brown, Buddy Hield, Jamal Murray and Pascal Siakam.February 2017: Magic Johnson assumes power as Jim Buss and Kupchak are fired. The front office’s power shift comes with the renewed emphasis on clearing salary-cap space to pursue elite free agents.June 2017: The Lakers trade away Russell for the No. 27 pick and Brook Lopez, with Johnson later saying Russell lacked the leadership qualities that he sought in a point guard. The deal is also used to unload the contract of Timofey Mozgov for roughly $22 million in cap space, which the team identifies as critical to drawing elite free agents (at the time, the Lakers are in trade discussions for Paul George as well).The team goes on to use the No. 2 pick (moving up a spot in the lottery) to select point guard Lonzo Ball from UCLA, a local prospect with considerable hype. Johnson adds to it, identifying Ball as “the new face of the Lakers.”Notably, No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz has barely played to date, mostly sidelined by injury. The players who have been productive behind Ball to date include Jayson Tatum, De’Aaron Fox, Lauri Markkanen and Donovan Mitchell.The No. 27 pick in the Russell deal becomes Kyle Kuzma, who enjoys an All-Rookie team season and remains with the Lakers to this day.February 2018: While the Lakers don’t lose any lottery pick assets in a big trade at the deadline, they send Nance and Clarkson to Cleveland, profoundly shifting the chemistry of the team’s youthful core and further opening cap space in the hopes of luring two max contract players.June 2018: A first-round pick that the Lakers once conveyed to Phoenix in an ill-fated 2012 trade for Steve Nash finally becomes the No. 10 pick for Philadelphia. The 76ers use that to pick Villanova’s Mikal Bridges, who is traded to Phoenix.The Lakers are able to pick Michigan’s Moe Wagner in the first round at No. 25. While not involved directly among lottery picks, Wagner remains on the Lakers roster.July 2018: LeBron James signs with the Lakers, utilizing some of the cap space freed up in the Russell trade. Other Lakers assets leave during free agency, however.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions “The Los Angeles Lakers select …”Thursday night is liable to be the last time for the next few years the Lakers hear that phrase uttered in the NBA Draft lottery, and it is likely to be a strange moment. With a trade pending but not yet officially complete for Anthony Davis, NBA commissioner Adam Silver is poised to announce the fourth overall pick as a Lakers selection – even though everyone knows that player will be headed elsewhere no later than the end of July.The Lakers, who will have no picks remaining in the draft unless they trade back into it, have no plans to issue any statements about the No. 4 pick. Soon, he will likely be on his way to either New Orleans or possibly another trade partner to be revealed.In one sense, it’s the end of an era for the Lakers, although perhaps a welcome end. The prolonged stretch of losing seasons has given a franchise that had just two lottery picks before 2014 a rare chance to dip into the most exciting young talent entering the league. In four of the previous five drafts, the Lakers picked in the top seven picks, and were poised to do so again this year.

He goes on to set a career-high in scoring (21.4 ppg). Lopez also walks after one season to sign a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, going on to become a key piece of an Eastern Conference finals team that led the NBA in wins.February 2019: As the Lakers fail to acquire Davis at the trade deadline amid rumors that all of the team’s young talent was up for grabs, Russell is named an All-Star reserve amid a breakout season in Brooklyn. So far, he’s the only Lakers lottery pick from the past five years to be named to the All-Star Game.March 2019: Ball and Ingram are shut down for the season: Ball fails to come back from a severe ankle sprain, while Ingram requires surgery for a blood clot in his shoulder. Both players wind up playing fewer than 53 games in a 37-win season.June 2019: The Lakers trade away Ball, Ingram and this year’s No. 4 pick to the Pelicans in the Davis deal.When the trade is officially executed in July, the Lakers will have no remaining lottery picks – just James, Davis, Kuzma and cap space as the result of their maneuvers.

LeBron James, Lakers prepare for more restrictions to ward off coronavirus

first_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years “I think people are making the adjustment, quite frankly,” he said. “I know our guys still do their signature handshakes and whatnot, but it’s really more of an elbow bump now when you greet people, and I just think that’s a smart thing to do.”If there’s one thing the Lakers are prepared for, it’s world events beyond their control. From a preseason trip to China during an awkward political situation to dealing with the trauma of Kobe Bryant’s sudden death, these Lakers have been tested by off-court events since the season began. In that sense, the coronavirus scare won’t rattle them, they suggested.“We specialize in dealing with unusual circumstances,” Vogel said. “So we have experience with it, and this will be no different.”HOWARD MISSES GAME; WAITERS CONTINUES WORKOUTSWhile the Lakers have been reasonably healthy of late, center Dwight Howard missed Tuesday’s game as a late scratch with an upset stomach. It was the first time all season Howard (7.5 ppg, 7.4 rpg) missed a game.Dion Waiters was a healthy scratch as he continues to be worked into playing shape: He’s only played three games this season, and Vogel suggested that he’s still trying to get his legs underneath him. While the Lakers were off on Monday, Waiters went through a shooting and conditioning workout. Vogel said he hoped to get Waiters as much five-on-five scrimmaging as possible before he makes his Lakers debut. EL SEGUNDO — Between defenders in his path and media huddled around his locker, the one thing LeBron James doesn’t get all that often is space.He’ll get some now in one of those scenarios: New NBA guidelines limiting players’ direct contact with media over COVID-19 concerns led to the Lakers roping off six feet of space between journalists and James at the Lakers’ practice facility on Tuesday morning. Even James felt the new arrangement was a little strange.“I miss you guys being right here in my bubble,” he said gesturing his arms in the space around him. “Very challenging to do an interview like this.”That’s the new world of the NBA and other pro sports leagues as of Tuesday, when the MLB, MLS and NHL also took steps to keep “non-essential” personnel out of locker rooms. It could be the first of many measures to insulate players and staff from the threat of coronavirus, which has health experts concerned over the possibility of a pandemic. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The Lakers players had a meeting with the team doctor on Saturday, and other franchise employees were invited to a town hall meeting on COVID-19 on Monday. Staffers have been encouraged to decrease hand-to-hand contact, such as handshakes that are common in the NBA, and wash their hands thoroughly. There’s an increasing awareness that if a player or coach contracts the virus, it could represent an existential threat to the league this season.Vogel joked that he had embraced “dabbing” rather than handshakes, but said he thought the players and staff were treating the advice seriously.Related Articlescenter_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersOne of those options could be playing games without fans. The NBA’s board of governors should be discussing that this week in greater detail, ESPN reported, and teams are likely to be making plans for that possibility.For the Lakers, there are 20 games left in the regular season – conceivably, several of them could be in empty arenas. Coach Frank Vogel said he was taking the situation day-by-day, but conceded that “it looks like it is a possibility,” and that it looked more likely since the NBA first started talking about the issue last week.“Very strange,” he said. “But you gotta do what’s right under the circumstances and make the best of any situation, and if that’s what’s called for, then that’s what we’ll do.”While James notably said on Friday night that he wouldn’t play if fans couldn’t attend, by Tuesday, he had revised his position with the information that the NBA might mandate such a measure.“I had no idea that there was actually a conversation going behind closed doors about the particular virus,” he said. “Obviously I would be very disappointed not having the fans, because that is what I play for: I play for my family, I play for my fans. … But at the same time, you got to listen to the people that’s keeping a track on what’s going on. If they feel like it’s best for the safety of the players, the safety of the franchise, the safety of the league to mandate that, then we all listen to it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

LeBron James has adapted to a shifting world, setting the tone for the Lakers

first_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Everyone keeps asking how is the bubble or how is it going, and I just say ‘It’s 2020,’” he said. “Nothing is normal in 2020. Nothing seems as is, and who knows if it will ever go back to the way it was. But you make the adjustments and you figure it out along the way, that’s what life is all about.”James, 35, is still the NBA’s most influential player, and throughout a turbulent hiatus where many factors — most notably the spread of COVID-19 — felt out of the NBA’s hands, James loudly voiced a contingent of players who wanted to finish the season. And now that the Lakers are in Walt Disney World, without two important pieces but still among the favorites, the team is taking their cues from him as closely as ever.For James, the hiatus was the first time his life slowed down since his freshman year in high school, when he first came to prominence and began traveling the country for AAU. In the two decades since, he’s never stayed in one place for a few months at a time. He filled the hours of the suspended season with games with his sons and time with his wife, he said, which he had never had a lot of time to savor before.The thing he missed, too, was family: His mother Gloria James, who raised him on her own, chose to remain in Akron as states began locking down. He didn’t see her from All-Star Weekend in February until June, he said — the longest he’s gone in his life without seeing her.“That was extreme for me … coming from a single parent household, being an only child, my mother was 16 when she had me — for me to be away from her that long,” he said. “My mom, she kept me sane, because she said, ‘In due time we’ll join back again.’” LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> The day before the season shut down for four months, LeBron James stood 6-to-8 feet from a crowd of reporters lined behind improvised barriers. He teased about the then-new social distancing protocols, put into effect in hopes of staving off the coronavirus.“I miss you guys being right here,” he gestured with his hands. “Like right around here in my bubble.”Monday was the first day since then that James had reporters in his bubble, spaced apart and all wearing masks after completing quarantine at Disney World. James’ beard was bushier, with patches of gray creeping in along the fringes. He looked leaner than that day in March, and feet away from him in The Arena at Wide World of Sports in Walt Disney World, the NBA was still constructing the game-day atmosphere for a venue that will be nearly devoid of spectators when basketball tips off again next week.Dramatic, difficult and nearly unimaginable change has been the theme of the year, James said, but he’s been ready to adapt. While the Lakers are among the teams that have taken hits to their depth, but the NBA bubble has largely gone to plan at this point: The league and the NBPA have only disclosed two cases of COVID-19 that were both caught in quarantine. The wide hope is that the league can pull off its restart without a significant outbreak through its safety protocols.The threat of coronavirus looms over the entire event. But James said he takes each day in stride, rather than worry about the threats that may come to pass. Based on the year so far, he’s chosen to try to control what he can.“‘I don’t wake up in the morning saying, ‘OK (the bubble) may not work.’” he said. “I don’t approach it that way. I woke up this morning thinking about my family, one, and then thinking about how I was going to impact practice today and help us get better. That’s it.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years The bubble, James said cheerfully, feels like “a big ol’ AAU tournament for grown men.” Teammates and competitors alike have observed that James, whose celebrity restricts him in some instances from normal life pursuits, has found a sense of ease in an environment with just NBA personnel. James said the four months with his family helped offset some of the sacrifice he’s making now: The Lakers are hoping to run to the Finals, which would take through at least early October, and player families aren’t expected to join until possibly September.Loss has also become a difficult theme of the year: James reflected on the death of Civil Rights activist and politician John Lewis, who he called a “legend” who taught the value of “good, positive conflict that can create change.” He also said the loss of Kobe Bryant, who died in January, still hangs heavy with the franchise.“A day doesn’t go by when I don’t think about him,” he said. “And a day doesn’t go by when our organization does not remember him and think about not only (Kobe), but Gigi, Vanessa and the girls. They’re a part of this family, just as big as anybody in this organization’s history. So, we still wear 24 and 8 and the No. 2 with pride and with remembrance of how great they were.”The Lakers are edging closer to competitive play: They’re scheduled for a scrimmage against the Mavericks on Thursday night. James said his games with his sons helped fulfill his desire for competition, but he still missed the NBA game.Competition isn’t just about the scoreboard: Reports recently acknowledged that the season-long awards will be judged on only the first portion of the season that ended March 11. Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is widely expected to win his second straight league MVP honor, but Frank Vogel stumped for James as the clear MVP: “Nobody impacts winning more than LeBron James,” he said.James didn’t directly advocate his candidacy, but also said he thought he had disproved a significant claim against him that he long benefited from tearing up a weaker Eastern Conference.“There was a lot of conversation about LeBron can do those things in the East but if he ever came to the West what could he do?” he said with a laugh. “So I heard all of that. To be able to have our team at the top of the Western Conference and playing the way that we were playing at that time and the way I was playing, it’s definitely a good feeling.”Related Articlescenter_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Williamson was the first overall pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft. The oddsmakers believe more in No. 5 pick Darius Garland and his chances to make an impact with the Cavaliers, placing him at 10-to-1, than fourth pick De’Andre Hunter of the Hawks, who is 14-to-1.Wing Jarrett Culver (16-to-1) of the Timberwolves and point guard Coby White of the Bulls (20-1) are far ahead of the next group of contenders: Cam Reddish of the Hawks and Jaxson Hayes of the Pelicans (28-to-1) and Cam Johnson of the Suns (30-to-1).The highest-ranked second-round choice is former Maryland big man Bruno Fernando of the Hawks, who is 50-to-1 on the BetOnline chart but went 34th overall in the draft. He is ahead of 11 players who were first-rounders and is tied with five others, including lottery picks Romeo Langford of the Celtics and Tyler Herro of the Heat.last_img read more

Related News Raptors president Masai Ujiri said Tuesday he has no intention of leaving the team.Ujiri told reporters at a season-ending media conference he’s happy in Toronto. Ujiri and the Raptors face a major challenge in the offseason, with the pending free agency of two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who has reportedly turned town his $21.3 million option for next season. However, Yahoo Sports reported Sunday that the star forward is “seriously considering re-signing” with Toronto. The Raptors have a big advantage in negotiations as they are the only team able to offer Leonard a “supermax” deal of five years and $190 million, which is about $15 million more than he could get anywhere else.Ujiri, who became Toronto’s general manager in 2013, said he’s met with Leonard and called the meetings “positive,” but didn’t divulge any details.“We’re really approaching it like we want to bring everyone back,” Ujiri said, regarding Leonard and the Raptors roster.

Damir Beljo: Why I stopped whistling on the Anthem of B&H

first_imgBoxer Damir Beljo managed to do what many have not. Although it was happening before that the fans whistle at the anthem of B&H, only Beljo managed to stop them.To recall, in the hall Pecara in Siroki Brijeg, Beljo fought for the title of European Champion. Before the fight in Pecara, the fans tried to whistle at the anthem of B&H. However, boxer from Mostar managed to stop this attempt.“Those whistles were not intended for B&H. They also love this country and it is their country. They are maybe not satisfied with the status of Croats in B&H,” said Beljo, the European champion in cruiserweight by the WBO version.“I think that B&H is my country as it is for any person from Sarajevo, Zenica and Siroki Brijeg. Those whistles of the fans from Siroki Brijeg were not intended for B&H. They also love this country and it is their country. They are maybe not satisfied with the status of Croats in B&H. However, I am not the right person to talk about it because, honestly, I’m not familiar with these things enough. I do not do politics and I do not want to get involved in politics,” said Beljo.Beljo emphasized that he wants to separate sports from politics. It affected him a lot when he read the comments saying that he betrayed his people.“I cannot hate anyone because I am not raised that way. I do not want to generalize people. I am proudly carrying the flag of B&H because I was born here.”(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more
