Lakers Pre-Draft Podcast: Mitch Kupchak

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak joined us on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the team’s plans heading into Thursday’s NBA Draft, during which the Lakers are slotted to pick at No.’s 43 (from Memphis) and 58 in Round 2.

Kupchak explained that it’s difficult for a team like the Lakers to bring in a starter or even a role player with a pick as low as No. 43, but the team has certainly done its due diligence and hopes for a stroke of luck in terms of a coveted player still being available.
