Michigan Basketball: Could Moe Wagner be the Lakers Kevin Love?

With Kawhi Leonard reportedly hoping to play in Los Angeles, the Lakers will be busy exhausting all avenues to significantly improve their roster. According to reports, the Knicks are the preferred destination for Leonard's personal team of advisors and he would be a star in Madison Square Garden.

The Lakers are also rumored to be a potential landing spot for LeBron James, should he decide to leave Cleveland.

If George indeed decides to pass up the Lakers when they have the ability create two max slots, that would definitely make LeBron's next move more complicated.

"We feel he's going to be a special, special player".

Pelinka did not want to address the talks, saying he wanted to respect other teams with which he has discussions.

Los Angeles is now set to pick 25th in the first round. "That's just the way I'm built, and I know Magic's built the same way and Jeanie [Buss] ultimately, we don't compete to play games, we compete to win championships so there will be a sense of urgency until that's accomplished".

With outside shooting being a crucial part of the game in the modern NBA, Wagner seems to have stood out to Pelinka and company. He wants to be in L.A. These are things I'm getting through the grapevine. "I think I got to go with Kobe, especially since he stayed there for his entire career".

He averaged 9.75 ppg last season in Kansas, shooting 39% in threes.

The Lakers received the 25th overall pick alongside Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

Wagner worked out twice for the Lakers and general manager Rob Pelinka, a fellow MI man.

The Lakers' own pick, No. 10 overall, belonged to Philadelphia as part of the Steve Nash trade in 2012.
