One of those prospects has expressed a desire to live in Los Angeles. Center Joel Embiid of Kansas may turn out to be the number one overall draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and seems to want to land in Los Angeles according to the following tweet:

One of the many perks of playing for the Lakers is living in the city of Los Angeles. Unlike many other major cities in the United States, Los Angeles offers anything a young and wealthy athlete like Embiid would want or need.

With that being said, Embiid won’t be the only player in the upcoming draft to show an interest in living in Los Angeles.

Another draft prospect that has also fell in love with Los Angeles appears to be Australian phenom Dante Exum. Rumors have been floating around that Exum may attempt to force his way to the Lakers in June.

Exum recently signed with Kobe Bryant’s agent, Rob Pelinka, and has been seen at a Laker game sitting alongside the popular NBA agent. Exum plans to sit down with Kobe in the near future in an attempt to receive advice and guidance from the five-time NBA champion who he’s admired from afar.

At this point in time, it’s hard to speculate which players will enter the draft and what draft position the Lakers will end up having come June. Most believe the Lakers will end up with a top five pick putting them in play for Embiid or Exum if available.

Both players could be potential game-changers in the future with Exum receiving comparisons to a young Michael Jordan and Embiid receiving a similar comparison to Hakeem Olajuwon. Although it’s early, these two could be headed to Los Angeles in the near future with hope of one of the two helping turn the franchise around.
