Lakers Draft Madaubum and Majok with 56th and 58th Pick

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

With the 56th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft , the Los Angeles Lakers selected Chukwudiebere Madaubum from Nigeria. Madaubum last played for the NBA D-League with the Bakersfield Jam.

In the D-League, he averaged less than a point and less than a rebound, and wasn’t much of a factor for the Jam. Madaubum does not ring a bell for many fans, and people are unsure what he will provide for the Lakers. The 6-9 forward will most likely see himself back in the D-League unless he shocks the Lakers’ coaching staff.

With the 58th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Ater Majok from Sudan. Majok once played for the University of Connecticut, but decided to leave the States after one season

This was the Lakers last pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, and now they will begin to evaluate the players to see if who will make the team roster.

Last season the front office was blown away by the play of second rounder rookies Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter, and they eventually decided to bring the players along for the season.

Now with four second round college/international players looking to make the roster, the front-office will have to make a decision as to whom to keep and whom to cut.

    What was Mitch doing drafting those two guys at the end? I’d be interested in your opinion. There were such quality guys available. Consider me puzzled.

        I read somewhere<, I'll look for the source, that Chukwudiebere Madaubum what traded tp denver for a future 2nd round pick and Ater Majok will go back over seas.

    If that’s the best that Buss can do, he needs to fire himself. I was okay with the first two second round picks but the last two were just bad.

    I feel they just drafted the last two so they have big bodies that can be thrown around during practice then let go before the season starts. I feel most of the roster tweaks are going to be coming in with the free agency and the Lakers seemed to rely less on this years draft for help.

      All the build up of trade talks, excited about today draft what a let down 56th and 58th picks.  After a four game swept of Dallas the frustration continues!!!!!!!!

    I love this picks. Look like we got two more D.J. Mbenga’s guys who have size long arms and will work hard to make the team. I was a big D.J. Mbenga fan.
    Plus, one of these guys forget which one of them someone said he had a 7’7 wing span.
    With Character and Ebanks hopefully getting more time add big G and F position players.
    I like how our team looks.

    Sometimes as lakers fans we can really ” whine ” or complain whatever these are defensive players remember something. We lacked in last season we knew this was a weak draft in the first place so why bitch n moan about these picks if they can rebound n block shots that’s more than what we could do in the playoffs so chill the fuck out????
