He (Buddy Hield) knows the consensus from around the league is that the Lakers probably will take Duke forward Brandon Ingram.

But that hasn’t stopped Hield and his representatives from making a push to have him put on a Lakers’ uniform.

“The Lakers are losing Kobe. They need a scorer. So why not?” Hield said. “Why not come in and fill in his spot? I’m a confident player. I’ve been under pressure my whole life, just overcoming obstacles. I know this is a [big] market and everybody with the Lakers is expecting to win. So I’m a player that comes expecting to win right away.”
