The new season is only a few months away, with new players like Towns and Okafor waiting to find out who they’ll be drafted to and who will take the #1 spot in the draft. The Minnesota Timberwolves have the first pick in the draft, and will likely draft Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor, who are both young centres who could go to an already young team with Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and the athletic guard Zach LaVine already proving to be very efficient for the Wolves.
Elsewhere, you have the Lakers, who are hoping to revitalise their chances for the playoffs by adding one of the previously mentioned players to their roster, a big guy who can score could really help the team who is in desperate need of more scorers as Kobe isn’t going to be around forever and Nick Young isn’t enough of a threat offensively to lead a team.
It’s a huge gamble drafting any player, especially a centre, with so many players not living up to expectations, such as Kwame Brown and Hasheem Thabeet being the most modern examples, so anything can happen!
