Lakers News And Rumors: Could Dante Exum Slide To The Lakers?
[new_royalslider id=”140″]

Many are expecting Dante Exum to be picked fifth overall in the NBA Draft. He is thriving on being called the mystery man right now. His skills are far but a mystery as this young 18-year-old player from Australia is hoping to make a big appearance at the NBA draft tomorrow.

The Lakers had no shot at Exum two weeks ago, but Joel Embiid’s injury rearranged everyone’s draft board. The Lakers top pick right now is Julius Randle or they may pick Marcus Smart, a tough player who likes getting to the rim. If Exum isn’t picked at 3rd or 4th, the Lakers have a chance of drafting the Aussie. Although they are amazing players, neither Smart or Randle have the “superstar” label that many NBA analysts see in Exum as his future unfolds in the NBA.

The Lakers were hoping on to land a meeting with Carmelo Anthony, but it looks like that won’t be the case.

According to ESPN Chris Broussard’s Twitter, he reports that the Lakers are not one of those teams who will meet with Anthony on July 1. Carmelo at the moment is only meeting with the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and Chicago Bulls. They have good pairs for Carmelo as the Bulls can pair him up alongside a healthy Derrick Rose, Mavericks with Dirk Nowitzki, and Houston with James Harden and Dwight Howard.

Kobe Bryant talked with Carmelo privately as they are good friends and Bryant wants to recruit him to the team. It remains to be seen if Kobe’s pitch will work with the three other teams mentioned seemingly being atop Anthony’s list.
