2014 NBA Draft: Lakers To Work Out Indiana Forward Noah Vonleh On June 4

UPDATE: The Lakers will not only be working out Vonleh, but also Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart, another popular choice at number seven, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman:

The Los Angeles Lakers are under a lot of pressure to improve the team this off-season. In possession of a large amount of cap room, and the seventh pick in the draft, the team has some tools to do so.

The Lakers could choose to trade their first-round draft pick for multiple assets, but if they choose to keep the selection, one player who is a possibility is Indiana freshman big man Noah Vonleh, who has already scheduled a workout with the team according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman:

Vonleh is one of the most promising prospects in the draft. He is 6’9 with a massive wingspan of over 7’4 and one of the largest pair of hands ever measured at the NBA Pre-Draft Combine. He is an excellent rebounder and one of the youngest prospects in this class, so he has a lot of room to grow.

Vonleh is one of many prospects who has been linked to the Lakers at that seventh position. Along with Vonleh, Marcus Smart, Julius Randle, and Aaron Gordon are all possibilities, and the Lakers recently watched Gordon in a public work out.

The Lakers entire front line is set to hit free agency, and the return of guys like Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill are questionable at best. Vonleh isn’t one of the most NBA-ready prospects, but much like Utah’s Derrick Favors, he could become a top-notch player after a couple of years of developing.

The Lakers will be sure to have Vonleh go through a number of different drills to make sure that he could fit in to this culture, and he will be a name to watch throughout this draft process.
