Chris Paul Hints LeBron James Prefers Lakers Over Rockets

LeBron James and Chris Paul

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.

Kyrgios Queen's quest ends, Wimbledon next
He has a 14-1 winning record over Cilic but might be second-favourite on Sunday with the Croatian in superb form. It was a cathartic moment for Cilic who had finished as the runner-up at Queen's and Wimbledon past year .

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.
