As of right now, Andrew Bynum, Lamar Odom, and Pau Gasol are still part of the Lakers.
The lengthy frontcourt players have been the subject of many trade rumors recently, but none of those trade rumors came true on draft day.
The Lakers didn't have a first round pick after trading it to New Jersey, but did have four second round picks. And if you think second round picks are irrelevant, then you don't know the history of success Mitch Kupchak has had as the general manager and the assistant general manager to Jerry West.
The Lakers have found both starters and quality role players in the second round over the years. Nick Van Exel, Ruben Patterson, Luke Walton, Ronny Turiaf, Von Wafer, and Marc Gasol (who was traded for his brother, Pau) were all Lakers' second rounders.
This year the Lakers used their four picks on these players:
41. Darius Morris, PG, Michigan. An L.A.-native who attended Windward School, a private school in Mar Vista, Morris slipped in the draft and the Lakers felt fortunate he was around when their pick came up. With the possible departure of Shannon Brown, there is a decent chance that Morris not only makes the team, but may see some playing time.
Morris, 6'5, left Michigan after two seasons, and averaged 15 points per game, and 6.7 assists, last season. He is a good penetrator and has strong passing skills.
I need to work on my three-point shot. I plan to attack and work hard on that in the offseason, get it together, Morris said in a conference call.
46. Andrew Goudelock, SG, College of Charleston. Loquacious and confident, Goudelock was the Southern Conference Player of the Year last season, and averaged 23.7 points per game, and 4.2 assists. The 6'3 guard is difficult to defend with quality one-on-one skills.
Kupchak believe Goudelock has a decent chance to make the team, along with Morris. The Lakers need help with their reserve guards after lackluster seasons from Derek Fisher, Steve Blake, and Brown.
The additions of Morris and Goudelock won't prevent the Lakers from actively looking for reinforcements at both guard positions in the free agent and trade markets.
56. Chukwudiebere Maduabuma, PF, Nigeria. A 6'9 forward, Maduabuma played just 20 minutes for the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Developmental League with limited success. He lacks strength and offensive skills.
58. Ater Majok, PF, Sudan. A 6'10 power forward who recently played in the Australian league, Majok is a longshot to play in the NBA after struggling last season while playing with the University of Connecticut.
A surprise in the draft was heralded Kansas freshman Josh Shelby slipping to No. 49, to Memphis. The 6'3 sharpshooter was considered a possible first-round pick, but the Lakers passed on him with two picks.
The Lakers had forwards Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter on the roster last season. Both players will need to show improvement if they expect to make the roster next season, or even see time off the bench.
