NBA Draft Results: A Recap & Grade Of The Lakers Selections

The Lakers had four second-round picks in Thursday night's NBA Draft. They went guard heavy with their first two selections, perhaps to help offset the potential loss of Shannon Brown, who is not expected to exercise his $2.4 million option to return. Chad Ford of ESPN gave the Lakers a draft grade of C+. Here is a recap of their draft:

No. 41: Guard Darius Morris, Michigan

Ford said, "If coach Mike Brown can get him to defend his position and improve his jumper, we could remember him as a draft night steal down the road," but that seems easier said than done.

No. 46: Guard Andrew Goudelock, College of Charleston

Goudelock is a solid three-point shooter (41.3% from distance in four years in college) and the all-time leading scorer in Charleston, who Ben Rosales of Silver Screen and Roll called "a poor man's Jimmer [Fredette]."

No. 56: Forward Chukwudiebere Maduabum

Maduabum played last season with the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Developmental League. This pick was traded to Denver for a future second round pick.

No. 58: Forward Ater Majok

Majok, who played a year at UConn and a year in Australia, and is a real long shot to become a Laker. Watch him shoot against cones!
