Sources: Lakers Looking to Acquire a First-Round Pick

on

The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to acquire another first-round pick for Thursday’s NBA draft, league sources told ESPN.

The Lakers have engaged at least two teams in the lottery, sources said, as they search for players to improve their outside shooting and perimeter defense.

Los Angeles currently holds the second and 28th picks in this year’s draft. While there have been inquires on the No. 2 pick, sources said it remains unlikely the Lakers would trade out of that position.
