Players Who Should Be on the Trade Block After 2018 NBA Draft

Players Who Should Be on the Trade Block After 2018 NBA Draft

Sources said Johnson and Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka spoke to a large group of team employees, warning them about tampering.

"I am a big Kobe fan", Wagner said when asked who he considers to be the greatest Laker in the storied franchise history. "We don't really see that as a challenge, we just see it as a reality, but we also feel like because of the DNA shift here and because of the energy around our team and our young core and our cap flexibility, that players want to be here". We don't compete to play games.

Per NBA rules, teams are prohibited from negotiating with free agents until midnight on July 1.

The Michigan product, though, likes how the current Lakers are trying to play as fast as the Showtime Lakers did. He joined Larry Bird and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only players to have 20 points and 15 rebounds in a national semifinal.

He was seated in the stands at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with his agent, coach from Ukraine, parents and girlfriend, when former Kansas guard Svi Mykhailiuk heard his name called in this year's NBA Draft on Thursday night. There were times in the tournament this year where he was guarding great players like Marvin Bagley and not backing down from him. The Cavs will be among the favorites to reach the NBA Finals if the league's best player chose to stay put for another season. "For me, I have a pretty good stroke and I can knock down shots".

Suspect Dedrick Williams arrested and charged with XXXTentacion's murder
A 22-year-old man has been charged with the murder of controversial rapper XXXTentacion , after being arrested by Florida police. Police said Williams was also charged with probation violation for theft of a motor vehicle and driving without a valid license.

It's also fair to expect Michigan's draft success to continue in 2019.

The Lakers brass knows there's an opportunity to be a contender immediately with the potential moves they can make this summer.

The Lakers chose Wagner with the 25th pick in the National Basketball Association draft Thursday night, adding the versatile center as the next piece in their talented young core. And Luke felt that when we had him in our building that he had off-the-charts basketball IQ.

Even with the Thunder coming just two losses away from missing the playoffs, and then falling to Utah in six games during their first-round matchup, there is all sorts of optimism in Oklahoma City that George will re-sign.
