With the free-agent world revolving around LeBron James, everyone is waiting for the dominoes to fall on NBA Draft night, and while a minor move, the Lakers may have gotten the ball rolling with the acquisition of the pick.
The Ohio born star player was able to score averages of 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists in 82 games at regular season and with an average time of 41.9 minutes in playoffs in 22 games, he scored 34.0 points, 9.1 rebounds and 9.0 assists.
Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man.
Pelinka said that coach Luke Walton felt that Wagner has "off-the-charts basketball IQ", which is one of the "pillars" that Pelinka wants to use to build this team, along with shooting, length, versatility and toughness.
The Lakers have been bad for the last few seasons with an eye on this year's free agent class.
Last year, the Lakers drafted Kyle Kuzma with the 27th pick. "Dirk (Nowitzki) had a huge impact on that, just being a player that made it, a player that did incredible things in the league, and also being a player that was under the radar for a long time, and just this skinny kid from Germany, similar to me".
If they don't want to re-sign him at a lower cost, it's not a certainty he gets an National Basketball Association job next season.

"(Mykhailiuk) is a 20-year-old player who's really one of the best knockdown shooters we had in our building during the draft process", Pelinka said. Knocks on his defense and wingspan put him in the second round, but the Lakers were impressed by his skill in their private workout.
Pelinka did not want to address the talks, saying he wanted to respect other teams with which he has discussions. And then Collin, we got to get there with experience as well. Both are intelligent players who don't concede on the defensive side - even against the second pick of this year's draft. Here are the 2018 NBA Draft grades for the Los Angeles Lakers.
