Lonzo Ball was taken behind Markelle Fultz, who was selected with the No. 1 overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers. His four years at Villanova allowed him to sharpen his game and become the all-around player he is now. This young Lakers squad has not experienced much winning at the National Basketball Association level, but with players such as Hart, Kuzma, and Ball joining the roster, the wins should be coming sooner than later.
Bryant was the second Hoosiers player to be drafted Thursday night, joining forward OG Anunoby, who went No. 23 overall to the Toronto Raptors.
"Welcome to the team Lonzo Ball".

Women's tennis has been crying out for a young player to not just make a breakthrough but build on it and become a great champion. Ostapenko's beaming smile as she raised the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen was the only thing sunnier than her strokes all fortnight.
Pelinka added, "Listen, there can be a sense of bravado with some of the media stuff, but when you get to see the heart of a person and how they treat others, I think that's when you really get to know them".
Bryant was the second IN player selected on Thursday, joining OG Anunoby, who went IN the first round at No. 23 overall to the Toronto Raptors.
Part of the haul for the Los Angeles Lakers' trade with the Brooklyn Nets included the No. 27 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. I kind of changed my jump shot up a little bit, made it more fluid and more comfortable. "It's going to be a surprise for you guys and me".
Hart was the only senior drafted in the first round, and most observers think the Lakers got an NBA-ready talent in the former national champion. The Big East player of the year scored 18.7 points per game last season and excelled as a wing defender. Both Clarkson and Ball are below average defenders and Hart thrives on the defensive end, leading the Big East in defensive win shares in back-to-back seasons.
