The Los Angeles Lakers are predicted to pick power forward Mike Scott in Sheridan Hoops' latest mock draft. The senior out of Virginia would be able to contribute to the offense immediately.

Mike Scott, a power forward out of Virginia is the Los Angeles Lakers' selection in the latest mock draft from Sheridan Hoops. They call Scott a player with polish who "should be able to provide valuable minutes off the bench for a team right away."

Draft Express has more on the red shirt senior:

Facing many questions coming into the season, both about his ability to expand his offensive game and about how his twice surgically repaired ankle would hold up, Mike Scott has responded with a phenomenal season.

His scoring instincts appear to be his most dependable skill to translate to the next level, which combined with the improvements he's made defensively and as a rebounder and his high work ethic and basketball IQ should be enough to get him some strong looks in the second round, despite his average physical tools and advanced age.
