Chris Paul Hints LeBron James Prefers Lakers Over Rockets

Chris Paul Hints LeBron James Prefers Lakers Over Rockets

Newman will join Kansas teammate Svi Mykhailiuk with the Lakers, selected 47th overall in Thursday's draft.

Moe Wagner became U-M head coach John Beilein's ninth National Basketball Association draft pick this evening when he was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 25th overall pick, further enhancing the Wolverine head man's impressive ability to develop talent.

The 6-foot-11 Wagner entered the draft after leading the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament championship game.

Following a breakout sophomore season, Wagner continued his upward path leading U-M in scoring (14.6 points per game) and rebounding (7.1).

Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man.

"Nowadays in the National Basketball Association they're trying to find players who can shoot", Mykhailiuk said.

Melania Trump sends a questionable message en route to the border
Shocking images and audio of children being detained at Customs and Border Protection facilities provoked outrage online. She changed into sneakers before landing, but the heels captured a disproportionate amount of media attention.

Another incredible aspect regarding all nine of these players is how quickly each of them developed under Beilein.

Now, LeBron and his chief irritant are heading into uncertain offseasons that could result in them no longer matching up in the playoffs.

On Thursday, fansite Lakers Nation noted that the Lakers had accumulated yet another second-round pick, 39th overall from Philadelphia.

Given the fact that Brook Lopez is an unrestricted free agent and might not return as well as the idea that the Lakers might not match whatever restricted free agent Julius Randle is offered by another club, some minutes could immediately open up for Wagner. The Lakers have positioned themselves to make a run at LeBron James and Paul George with the ability to create to max contract slots. Head coach Luke Walton said Wagner's personality electrified the room.

"We're building a culture, and he brings a lot to the table as far as the passion he plays with, his unselfish nature, the way that he sprints the floor". He admired fellow German Dirk Nowitzki, but really idolized Kevin Garnett. If July 1 happens with one or two superstar players, great.

"I remember getting up at 3 a.m., watching the games", Wagner said.
