Lakers News: Chad Ford Likes Randle, Smart, Saric, Or Trade For Lakers

The hopes of Lakers fans everywhere were shattered last night when the team fell one spot in the NBA Draft Lottery, and will now select seventh overall in next month’s NBA Draft.

While they won’t get one of the premier prospects with that pick, there are still a number of talented players that could be had at that position. Not to mention there is always a possibility that the Lakers could trade the pick.

And that possibility is exactly what ESPN’s Chad Ford believes will happen. In a chat with fans, Ford was asked if he thinks the Lakers would trade their pick and he believed they would, while also tossing out some possibilities if they keep the pick:

Yeah, I think they are in the same boat as the Celtics [...] If Julius Randle or Marcus Smart are there, they are two players who I think could help them right now and could be intriguing. Dario Saric, if he was willing to come right now, would also be a guy they’d give a long look to.

The Lakers will almost definitely be looking to move the pick for more assets that will help them. With so many holes on the team, the Lakers need as much help as they can get.

If they do keep the pick, Randle and Smart would both be excellent selections. Randle could immediately step in and start as the Lakers entire frontcourt is heading to free agency. Smart could give the Lakers a point guard who can keep up with the Westbrooks and Parkers of the NBA. Saric would also be interesting as he boasts a skillset similar to Lakers favorite Lamar Odom.
