Everything we learned from the 2018 NBA Draft

Aside from teams swapping picks, there were no major deals made during Thursday's NBA Draft.

The Lakers top the list from Bovada with 4/13 odds, while the Cavaliers are second on the list at 13/4. According to Hoops Hype, James will make a little over $35 million if he signs a max deal.

If George re-signs with the Thunder, the Lakers may consider engaging in a blockbuster trade with the San Antonio Spurs to acquire Kawhi Leonard.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added his voice to the James situation and specifically the possibility of him with the Lakers.

Mykhailiuk's negative wingspan - which means his arms extended are shorter than his height (6-5 vs. 6-8) - was viewed as a reason to downgrade his status, but his standing as one of the best pure shooters in the draft class clearly inspired the Lakers to overlook that.

"If you have success in any walk of life, you're going to face that", Pelinka said.

Wayfair case, overturning the long-standing rule that states could not tax businesses or sellers outside of that state's borders. Some big-time retailers, such as Wal-Mart, already collect sales taxes because they have stores in all 50 states.

Among the other things, Altman said Thursday team owner Dan Gilbert is committed to winning another championship and will "spare no expense" when it comes to financially backing a squad capable of doing just that. "But we also feel like because of the DNA shift here and because of the energy around our team and our young core and our cap flexibility, that players want to be here".

Free agency may be where the Lakers are investing the most resources, but the Lakers still had draft picks, including the No. 25 pick they received in a trade with the Cavs.

Las Vegas is expecting LeBron James to head to Los Angeles after he becomes a free agent on July 1st, and there are plenty of reasons why James to L.A. makes sense.

Wagner was similarly excited to hear his name called by Los Angeles, where he will most likely fit in well due to their style of play. Los Angeles acquired the 25th pick from Cleveland last February in the trade involving Isaiah Thomas, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. But executing the Lakers' longtime goal of becoming a title contender this summer still will be no easy task. "It seems like it's just a constant grind".

"We want to respect his space during this process, and I continue to have really good dialogue with his management team as he goes through that process".

The Lakers have been bad for the last few seasons with an eye on this year's free agent class.
