That is precisely what Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is banking on. In an interview with Jaime Maggio on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Kupchak spoke about hoping to bring in an impact player at that spot:

While the draft is always a crap shoot, recent history suggests the Lakers could get a very good player at that position. Guys like Stephen Curry, Luol Deng, Nene, and Greg Monroe were all drafted at that position in recent years.

Kupchak will undoubtedly do his due diligence on anyone the Lakers will consider selecting with their draft pick. And he didn’t rule out the possibility of trading the pick away. But fans can rest easy knowing that Kupchak has a plan to bring the Lakers back to prominence.
