The 2015 NBA Draft is quickly approaching as the Los Angeles Lakers have worked out Jahlil Okafor, Kristaps Porzingis, D’Angelo Russell and Emmanuel Mudiay for their second overall pick. Although Karl-Anthony Towns is expected to meet with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, the Lakers have not been able to schedule one with him yet.

About two weeks ago, Mudiay had dinner with Lakers officials and worked out for the team the following day. According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, Mudiay plans to have another workout for the storied franchise before the draft:

While the Lakers are reportedly ‘locked’ on selecting Okafor if Towns is not available, the franchise could go away from their tradition of big men and select a guard instead. While Mudiay has been in the conversation, his draft stock has slightly slipped as he is projected to land with the Sacramento Kings (sixth) according to MyNBADraft.

With a week before the NBA Draft on June 25, the Lakers will explore all of their options and hopefully take the next step in this rebuilding process. Although the last two seasons have not resulted in playoff appearances, the Lakers are establishing their foundation for the post-Kobe Bryant era.
