He got drafted during commercial so I expect him to be a 2 time MVP.

The Lakers made a significant commitment to make sure they could get a chance at Maxwell Lewis, sending ~$4m to Indiana to move up from 47 to 40. The rangy 6-7 forward out of Pepperdine made a major impression in his predraft workout with the team.

Nice pick, he can score in a variety of ways off the bench. Even with the defensive weakness he may get PT at the end of the rotation in the regular season.

It’s so nice that Joey and Jesse get to cook now.

We desperately needed this transition with LeGrandpa and on/off day to Davis.

Sets us up when FAs see an attractive situation as opposed to no asset post LeKlutch.

So the Lakers somehow knew he would be there at 40 and not 47? I don’t buy that, extremely lucky if so. But I like the pick.

I was impressed with him. Waiting for “they got a better player at 40 than 17!”

There are questionable decisions that the Laker's front office has made, but they have been rock solid in the draft department.

This guy must be super good if they paid 4 million to get him.

There was probably a group of guys the Lakers felt could fall near that slot.
But you got Kobe Brown.
Go enjoy that.

Wow, what a steal, 1st round talent!!
Really excited to get this kid. He'll need to improve defensively but his overall game is very solid. Sweet pickup Lakers. Let's Go Lakers!

Yeah he might need a year or so, but who knows? His highlights totally pop.
