Without Jordan Hill - Lakers likely at about $22.2 mil in cap space - $13.8 mil if they opt Hill in - I'm thinking no latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

No. 2 draft pick could mean end of Jordan Hill's run with Lakers latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Mark Medina

Some info that would please Lakers fans: Kevin Durant, LaMarcus Aldridge, Isiah Thomas, Jason Kidd, Gary Payton were all No. 2 picks

Arash Markazi

The irony of Lakers fans bragging about their lottery pick to Clippers fans is just tremendous.

Adi Joseph

Couple strong quotes from agents about the Lakers to @Sean Deveney. Harsh criticism, but fair: bit.ly/1R3Ztqg http://t.co/G53pwdlZTO

No Lakers received a vote for any of the all-nba defensive teams

Sean Deveney

When @Los Angeles Lakers pitched FAs last 2 summers, had little to offer. Tuesday was a step toward changing that agents told me: sportingnews.com/nba/story/2015…

Sean Deveney

Lakers' draft lottery luck will help in free agency, agents say dlvr.it/9vCC4Z

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors were one of 6 teams that didnt have a player receive a single vote for NBA All-Defense (Raps, Nets, Knicks, Nuggets, Lakers, Wolves)

Josh Newman

Francesa currently hammering callers on what the Lakers should do at No. 2. I have a headache

T-Wolves prefer Jahlil Okafor, so Karl-Anthony Towns to the Lakers? lakersnation.com/nba-draft-rumo… http://t.co/66QkMPJVMk

Kobe Bryant, sobre el pick 2 de los Lakers: "Jugamos como una mierda todo el año. Es justo". ver.as/m4sm7 http://t.co/cJ4WRdQHlj

Eric Pincus

The Lakers' #2 pick will sign for $5.1 mil in their first year - their cap hold unsigned is $4.3 mil - so they'll need to hit FA 1st

Eric Pincus

Left out the 27th pick - pencil in Lakers at $22.2-$22.7 mil in cap w/o Hill

Eric Pincus

Technically the Lakers can trade their 2015 1st rounder - since they have the Houston pick at 27 - not an issue of legality but practicality

Eric Pincus

Lakers now owe their 2016 1st to the Sixers (top-3 protected) and 2018 1st to the Magic (top-5 protected) - 2017 no longer going to Orlando

Timberwolves wins the NBA draft lottery, Knicks out of the top-three 1. TWolves 2. Lakers 3. 76ers 4. Knicks sportando.com/en/usa/nba/161…

Sean Highkin

Jimmy Buss 100% asked Kobe to be the Lakers' lottery rep initially and I really want to know how that conversation went.

Sean Highkin

Anyone the Lakers draft has to be willing to accept a secondary role. This is still Nick Young's team.
