One player that has been mentioned as an option for the Los Angeles Lakers heading into the 2014 NBA draft is Noah Vonleh out of Indiana. Vonleh may not be an elite draft prospect like Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and Dante Exum, but he has peaked the interest of the storied franchise.

Vonleh was one of many draft prospects that worked out for the Lakers on Wednesday and said the following about potentially being drafted by Los Angeles on June 26, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Vonleh is considered to be a lottery pick and will likely be drafted in the top 10. The Lakers currently have the seventh pick in the draft with Vonleh potentially being an option for the team come draft day.

It will be a challenge for the former Hoosier to standout among the other talented prospects working out with the team on Wednesday, but his main goal was to show his versatility via Winters:

At this point in time, it remains unclear what the Lakers’ intentions are heading into the draft. GM Mitch Kupchak and company are open to the idea trading the pick for multiple picks later in the draft, but selecting Vonleh is an option for the team.

    Noah Vonleh: 6″10′ in college, 6’9″ in the draft, 6’8″ in summer league, 6’7″ in training camp, 6’6″ on opening night.

    • Badazztj12

      and you really think he is 6’8 and below? Look at the dude on a video damn.

      • Sanderson

        Do a Google images search on “Noah Vonleh Andrew Wiggins”, or go to YouTube and watch this year’s draft lottery, you can clearly see Wiggins is 2 inches taller than Vonleh, even Aaron Gordon is 1 inch bigger than Vonleh. His height is intentionally inflated, every scout knows, he grows his hair higher to make himself look taller, plus he’s got a really long neck, he’s built exactly like George Lynch. He’s no 6’10″, 6’6″ at best.

        • Tune

          Reading his heights, it looks like he just grew taller. Each LeBron camp he grew with latest being 6’9 1/2 with shoes.

        • Badazztj12

          Neck counts in for the height dumbass plus his wingspan is 7’4 and you just worrying about his length of his body and not worrying about how he plays?

          • steve jones

            If you think Noah can go up against PFs like Durant, Anthony Davis, Aldridge, or Blake, no chance, never, dude is a bust only a crack head like you thinks he’s got any game.

          • Badazztj12

            haha we will find out when he hits floor.

          • Badazztj12

            and why would you think a rookie with the 7th pick would have a chance against anyone in the league hell we haven’t seen them play even the top 4 picks, what if they choke?

      exaggeration is the best from of getting people to laugh…

    I would go for Randle than Vonleh.. Randle gets double team all the time in the NCAA…. plays smart basketball on the block… and battles the board every time…

    • Badazztj12

      Noah led NCAA in rebounding and box out. Randle box out too but he doesn’t play a lick of D. Plus he a undersized PF 6’8 1/2 and have a short wingspan (6’10)

      • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

        that might be true, but Randle was almost always got double teamed every time… it says a lot as to his effect on the floor.

        And also, I saw Wiggins and Noah Vonleh side by side, and I can tell, Wiggins stand taller than Vonleh… i think Vonleh is closer to 6-7 and than he is to 6-9…

        • Badazztj12

          Show me the picture or video because I watched him play against 6’10 and 6’11 PF’s and C’s and he looked the same size as them plus why would want someone who dont play D? I would rather get Jordan Hill back than drafting Randle.

        • Tune

          I looked at pictures, one looked like he was an inch taller than Wiggins, one he looked 2 inches taller, and another about the same height. I’d say 6’9 is accurate.

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            Yeah, I might be mistaken… he did infact looked the same height with Gordon in the workout… maybe the photo I have seen was from a year ago… my bad…

    a lot of scouts are saying no way vonleh or gordon is going to be drafted ahead of randle
