That is precisely what Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is banking on. In an interview with Jaime Maggio on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Kupchak spoke about hoping to bring in an impact player at that spot:

While the draft is always a crap shoot, recent history suggests the Lakers could get a very good player at that position. Guys like Stephen Curry, Luol Deng, Nene, and Greg Monroe were all drafted at that position in recent years.

The team will obviously be bringing in a number of players to work out individually over the next few weeks, but Kupchak knows that these workouts aren’t the only important thing in judging these potential draft picks:
