Lakers reportedly 'moving closer and closer' to picking Lonzo Ball

With the No. 2 pick., the Lakers are considering UCLA's Lonzo Ball, Kansas' Josh Jackson and Kentucky's De'Aaron.

The Los Angeles Lakers selected Duke forward Brandon Ingram with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Suns have the fourth pick in this upcoming draft, two spots behind the Lakers and one spot behind the Celtics.

The Brooklyn Nets also have three picks in this year's draft but because of the trade with the Celtics instead of the 1st pick they will be picking 22nd, 27th and 57th.

Teen fatally mauled by bear during running race in Alaska
Last week, a juvenile and two young adults sustained minor injuries when a female brown bear with two cubs attacked them. The juvenile's remains were transported from the mountain trail and the teen's next of kin were notified of the death.

The Lakers could take De'Aaron Fox or Dennis Smith Jr.at No. 4 and acquire another asset from the Suns.

Other ballclubs have contacted Los Angeles about the No. 2 pick, but the Lakers seem unlikely to trade out of that spot. During their first workout, the Lakers were unimpressed with Ball's conditioning.

The Suns now hold the fourth overall selection, but as noted in ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford's most recent mock draft, they would prefer not to stay there. Phoenix now has the No. 4 pick as a result of some bad luck at the draft lottery last month. With the National Basketball Association season in the books, the National Basketball Association off-season begins, starting with the Draft on June 22nd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. In this situation, the Celtics may opt to use Thomas as trade bait in the summer rather than allow him to demand a max contract amounting to $30 million per year in 2018.

The question is, will general manager Ryan McDonough look to find more wing depth there if the Suns land a new franchise point guard at No. 4? Majority are looking for players who will come in and start right away and see if they have someone they can build around. He averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists a game as a freshman last season.
