Lakers, 76ers to trade picks for star veterans

25 May 2016

The Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers could be looking at trading their picks in this year's draft for talented veterans.

The Los Angeles Lakers are inclined to keep the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association (NBA) draft, and there is a small chance they would deal it away. Undoubtedly, the most intriguing of those sources, though, was when Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak brought up the notion.

 

The two best players in the draft are Brandon Ingram of Duke and Ben Simmons of LSU. The 76ers are reported to have liked Simmons for the number one pick, however, Simmons is trying to push the 76ers to not take him and prefers to be drafted by the Lakers instead, although it's unclear if Simmons will have a say in that on draft night. However, as long as the Lakers plan to hold on to their No. 2 pick, they are expected to select Ingram, since Simmons is believed to be heading to Philadelphia.
