The Los Angeles Lakers have picked up another pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, according to a report. "That's just the way I'm built, and I know Magic's built the same way and Jeanie [Buss] ultimately, we don't compete to play games, we compete to win championships so there will be a sense of urgency until that's accomplished". "That dream is very, very far away when you're over there, so it's exciting to be here".

"He said, 'welcome to the Family.' That means a lot", Wagner said.

Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man. Even if LeBron doesn't come to the Lakers, Wagner could add another front-court shooter to pair with Kyle Kuzma. He wants his players to make plays, play confident, play fast. Coach [Luke] Walton used to play, as well, and he's a player's coach. He dropped 21 points on Texas A&M and fellow first-round pick Robert Williams at the Lakers' home arena before cutting down the Staples nets after scoring 12 points in a victory over Florida State in the West Regional final.

The Lakers' own first round pick, No. 10 overall, belongs to the Sixers as a result of the 2012 trade that brought Steve Nash to Los Angeles.

Canada just passed a law to legalize marijuana nationwide
Trudeau has strongly hinted that pardons are likely but he has resolutely refused to go down that path before the law is changed. Many of his customers are Canadian tourists who are terrified of trying to bring pot across the border, he said.

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

More so than any single basketball skill, the Lakers fell in love with Wagner's personality during pre-draft interviews and workouts. Right now, they have 11 players under contract for next season.

Newman made a decision to declare for the draft following a terrific string of performances in the NCAA National Tournament in which he put up 24.5 points in four games from the second round until the Final Four round.
