The team has been linked to a number of different prospects including Marcus Smart and Julius Randle. But another player of interest will be Arizona’s Aaron Gordon who told Slam Magazine that he would love to be a Laker:

The Lakers are a great program. It’s a traditional program, so I think the level of intensity will be way up. If I ended up playing with Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, that would be absolutely insane. I would want to know everything that they know. I’d be attached to Kobe at the hip. I’d be attached to him and Steve Nash.

These are the kinds of things you like to hear from a draft prospect, and is one of the reasons why Gordon is so highly touted in this draft, despite being far from a finished product.

Gordon is arguably the best athlete in this draft and has excellent defensive potential. He reminds many of Shawn Marion because of his quick jumping ability, but he still has a lot of work to improve his game offensively.

The fact that he seems so willing and eager to learn from two of the smartest players in the NBA shows that he is willing to put in the necessary work to become a great player.

Gordon will be one of many participating in the Lakers’ huge group workout taking place tomorrow giving him a chance to impress the Lakers organization up close and personal.
