2015 NBA Draft: Five Underrated Prospects The Lakers Should Consider At 27 And 34

SLIDE: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

With the regular season finally over, the focus of the fans has now turned to the off-season, and in particular, the 2015 NBA Draft. While most are focused on the potential top-five pick and whether or not the Lakers will keep it, the team does have two picks for sure at 27 and 34.

Obviously, the chances of getting a star player are more likely at the top of the draft, but some of the best young players in the league today were taken in that range including Rudy Gobert (27th overall), Jimmy Butler (30th), Hassan Whiteside (33rd), Draymond Green (35th) and Chandler Parsons (38th).

The Lakers had their own luck in the draft last year by acquiring Jordan Clarkson with the 46th pick and this draft could be no different considering how deep it is. Players like R.J. Hunter, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Tyus Jones have been mentioned for the Lakers, but it is just as likely that they won’t last until the Lakers are back on the board.

So with that said, we’re going to take a look at five prospects who are going a little under-the-radar right now, but could wind up being excellent choices for the Lakers with their 27th or 34th pick.
