Now given the Lakers draft position, the Lakers are looking at the second tier of talent in this years draft. However, that does not mean they cannot get any value with this pick.
As Siva showed throughout his college career, he plays an aggressive style of defense and he is a quick, athletic point guard that can get to the rim on command which is something that the Lakers have not had in the Kobe Bryant era.
Now lets not get carried away and say that Siva will be the number two point guard next year for the Lakers if in fact they do decide to draft him. According to Draft Express Siva is projected to still be on the big board when the Lakers are supposed to make their pick.
He needs to improve his jump shot and obviously he is a little small for the position, but this is a guy that can bring a lot of life to the Lakers bench and can be a very serviceable guard during the Lakers youth movement that will take place after the 2013 season.
The Lakers are also working out Miami power forward Kenny Kadji, Syracuse guard Brandon Triche, USC center Dwayne Dedmon, Arkansas guard B.J. Young, and Wake Forest guard C.J. Harris.
