The Los Angeles Lakers sit in a pretty darn good position heading into the 2017 NBA Draft. They are currently slated to pick second overall with former UCLA standout Lonzo Ball being the likeliest selection there.

This has led to reports indicating Los Angeles likely wouldn’t be willing to make a trade for him this summer.

In any event, the next week leading up to the 2017 NBA Draft will surely be interesting in Southern California.
