The Lakers have agreed to accumulate Anthony Davis from the Pelicans in trade for a package deal headlined by Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and the No. Four choose on this 12 months’s draft. Although already huge by any commonplace, that deal might even have a profound influence on the 2019 NBA Draft.
Jonathan Givony of ESPN has already up to date their mock with a really key distinction. If the Lakers aren’t selecting at No. 4, then all of a sudden Darius Garland – a reputation typically linked to Los Angeles thanks in no small half to the prospect’s agent Wealthy Paul – isn’t the automated selection there.
In Givony’s mock, if the Pels are selecting at No. 4, then Jarrett Culver is the choose, not Garland. To be frank although, that choose might simply as simply be De’Andre Hunter and even another participant who matches a positional want of no matter group finally ends up with that choose of their management come draft day.
Givony suggests in his mock that, if Culver goes No. 4, Garland might drop to No. 5, inflicting a domino impact that might bump a number of different gamers.
