I think we should get PG and stand pat with the rest of the roster since Spurs won't trade with us right now.

Ball | Hart
George | KCP?
Ingram | Ariza? | Wear
Kuzma | Wagner | Deng
Randle | Lopez? | Zubac

Newman and the other dude seem like Alex Caruso/Vander Blue two way contract projects.

Based on who was available I like the Wagner pick. The Lakers needed some depth at big man. With the system they run they also needed a guy who can play both PF and C who can also shoot the 3. The guy carried his team to the national championship playing against some other really good teams along the way. Last year they took a guy who won a national championship, this year they take a guy who made it there. I don't think he'll end up being a huge steal like Kuzma. But I do think he can be a good role player that can play two positions, be productive, and fit in well with this roster.

So Dwight Howard is going to be a free agent. LA can bring him back with Lebron

Wagner does make Slopez expendible. Would also soften the blow if we ended up not resigning Julius. I like what I'm seeing in his game. Dude moves with purpose. Very Kyle Kuzma esque.

I hope you are right about the young German. First reaction from the press is that Rob picked his "schoolmate"....as in Magic picking Kuzma because Kyle grew up in Flint, Michigan. Yes, I saw the NCAA tourney and Wagner looked good, hitting perimeter shots and the guy has that swagger in him etc.
I was just hoping they would fill up that PG reserved spot via draft because I don't want to live through that Ennis/Carruso combo.
I felt, the veteran Brunson would have been a good pick up, also thought they were eyeing Landry Shamet in the early mock draft. Hopefully they are already planning to sign a more dependable backup
I like Mykhailuk because of his ability to shoot from anywhere plus he is a veteran, reminds me of Radmanovic, hopefully without his lack of defense and focus..

Wagner plays his heart out and plays with high energy. Great backup at 4/5 with range. Will be cheap as well.. I hope he can become like Mehmet Okur from his Jazz days. Perfect replacement for Brook Lopez on cheap rookie deal.

Randle/Zubac/Bryant -- I'm good with moving Randle to C full-time
Kuzma/Wagner/Bonga
Ingram/Kuzma
PG13/Hart/Mykhailiuk --- I'm still holding onto hope for PG13
Lonzo/???

Good depth with multiple players who can play multiple positions.
-Wagner can play both PF and C
-Kuzma can play both PF and SF
-Randle can play both PF and C
-PG13 can play both SG and SF
-Hart can play both SG and SF

Only thing missing is a backup PG. I dunno who you add from free-agency. I also prefer Kuzma in 6th man role off bench so we need to add 1 more piece up at the 4.
