For the first time in a decade, the Lakers have a need for a young shooting guard as Kobe Bryant is entering the last two years of his illustrious NBA career.

An obvious place to find a replacement would be in this year’s NBA Draft, where the Lakers own the seventh pick. According to Comcast SportsNet, the Lakers will be working out one of the best in this draft class this week:

The lottery-projected shooting guard out of Michigan State Gary Harris is scheduled to work out for the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Lakers during the first week of June, sources informed CSNNW.com.

It is unknown if Harris will be taking place in the massive workout the Lakers are putting together on June 4. That workout will include other guards like Marcus Smart, Nik Stauskas, and Zach LaVine and would really show where Harris stands among the top prospects in this draft.

Harris is one of the top shooters in this draft class and would immediately help the Lakers in that department. He also has good athleticism that helps him finish at the rim. Most importantly, he’s a very good defender who can guard points and shooting guards. The Lakers need as many good defenders as they can get.

The Lakers will have a big decision to make on June 26 when they finally make their selection. Seven may be a little high for Harris, who is projected to go between 10-14, but with a trade of the draft pick always a possibility, anything is possible.
