Lakers reportedly checking out '50-60 players' in anticipation of the draft

Things are pretty simple for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2015 NBA Draft, right?

Easy. In the words of a different sport's most enthusiastic analyst: "Not so fast...

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: 'It looks like Julius Randle has recovered completely'

Oh, how different the Los Angeles Lakers' season might have been were it not for the injury to rookie Julius Randle. That's not to say things might have worked out better; the Lakers undoubtedly would have won a few more games, but that would in turn have meant lowered chances of snagging the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft. And Randle's presence probably wasn't going to...

Lakers GM: We don't have time to 'slowly build through draft'

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a pretty nice place in the 2015 NBA Draft. With the second overall pick, they'll likely have their choice of whichever of Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns isn't selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves. If the Lakers want to think outside the box and draft D'Angelo Russell or Emmanuel Mudiay, that will probably be on the table, too.No matter whom the...

Kupchak: Lakers Don't Have Time To Slowly Build Through Draft

The Los Angeles Lakers expect to keep the second overall pick, but their rebuilding project will likely involve pursuing free agents this summer and next. "We don’t have …. the time to methodically and slowly build through the draft," said Mitch Kupchak.

WATCH: Mitch Kupchak Pops Bottles After Lakers Win Second Overall Pick

The entire Lakers organization breathed a sigh of relief on Tuesday night. Going into the lottery, there was a 17.2 percent chance that the Lakers would end the night without their pick. Thanks to a 2012 sign-and-trade deal for Steve Nash with the Phoenix Suns (who traded the pick to the Philadelphia 76ers earlier this season) the Lakers would have to give up their 2015 first-round...
