Still, there are plenty of rumors swirling about other possible trades that may happen over the course of the next few days.

Philadelphia expects to pick Markelle Fultz at No. 1, making the LA Lakers' decision at No. 2 in the draft a bit clearer for the front office.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers are looking to acquire a first-round pick to add to the 2nd and 28th they already possess to address their most glaring needs, defense and shooting.

4 pick in the National Basketball Association draft, but it might not be high enough to get their top target.

The Lakers are hoping to add another lottery pick to take Duke's Luke Kennard, who they are very high on after working him out earlier this month. The Suns most likely will attempt to pair the two in the backcourt together, where both players posses the scoring and passing ability to become a potentially lethal tandem.

With the NBA's "one and done" rule, there are so many players in the draft who spent only one year in college and many young worldwide athletes 18-19 years old. In a media conference call, ESPN's Fran Fraschilla shared his thoughts on what everyone is wondering, who will be taken after Fultz and Ball?

Detroit wants to trade the pick for a veteran player to help them win now.

The Lakers met with the oldest Ball brother on Friday, a meeting which included a meeting with Lakers president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka. More than ever, he's the heavy favorite to get his wish to play for his hometown team.

After appearing concerned over the level of Lonzo's fitness following his first workout, his second meeting seemed to go better.

Ball, 19, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds over 36 games in his lone season with the Bruins in 2016-17.
