Unless, that is, Lakers legend and current president of basketball operations Magic Johnson - long familiar with Jackson's game due to his ties with his alma mater, Michigan State, and that program's recruitment of the Detroit native - sees more overall potential in Jackson. "If we have the 30th pick, we like 28 guys".
"Our opportunity was seven, could have been 10, so eight we'll live with", Jackson said. Now, we like 12. "There really was no way to walk out of here disappointed given the possible outcomes we faced". That's kind of a joke among us all. "I didn't know where we were going to land from there, but I was like 'OK, I can breathe now'".

Let's start by doing our first Sixers only mock draft of the spring. Cleveland certainly won't trade one of its best players to its most unsafe competitor, and the Bulls and Pacers seem determined to keep Butler and George. Though Ball projects as a point guard of the Jason Kidd prototype, there are some concerns about this young ball-handler entering the NBA Draft. The sheer ignorance and arrogance showed by Lavar Ball don't make sense to my traditional sensibility. The Pelicans traded their 2013 and 2014 first rounders to the Philadelphia 76ers to acquire point guard Jrue Holiday and they followed that up by shipping out their 2015 pick to the Houston Rockets for center Omer Asik. The Lakers' off-season is fascinating because it marks their best opportunity in years to lay the groundwork for a competitive team. That may be where they have to trade the pick for a player who can help them immediately. The losses included a home defeat to Yale in Fultz's debut (which came despite his own 30-point effort), as well as a 13-game losing streak to close out the season. That resonates even more strongly since the Lakers will not have their first round pick next year, meaning this is their only good shot at an elite draft talent in the next two summers at minimum. "Everybody else is in purgatory".
