The NBA Draft Is Full Of Potential

NBA Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers Considered Trading Down In 2017 NBA Draft To No. 4 Overall

There have been plenty of Lakers rumors surrounding the team in recent days.

Assuming the Lakers keep their second overall pick, Ball still seems like the obvious choice.

On June 22, the Phoenix Suns have a great opportunity to add to their young core with the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Lakers have made D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson available in trade talks earlier this offseason, and one or more of those players would probably be included in any deal.

With the NBA's "one and done" rule, there are so many players in the draft who spent only one year in college and many young global athletes 18-19 years old.

Detroit wants to trade the pick for a veteran player to help them win now.

The Los Angeles Lakers have done their due diligence on a number of top prospects leading up to the NBA Draft, but it would still be a surprise if they selected anyone other than Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick.

"The Suns have been trying to trade up and have had conversations with both the Lakers and Celtics", Ford wrote Monday. Majority are looking for players who will come in and start right away and see if they have someone they can build around.

"The two top guys still remain Fultz and Ball, very mature young players who are going to have an impact I think", said Fraschilla".

Ball, a native of L.A., has only worked out for the Lakers and hasn't even met with any other teams. More than ever, he's the heavy favorite to get his wish to play for his hometown team.

Ball, 19, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds over 36 games in his lone season with the Bruins in 2016-17.
