Coming off another loss in the Finals rumour has it the Lakers might be pushing the hard reset button and starting over. It starts with this pick which was obtained 2 offseasons ago when LA shipped Jay Humphries to Cleveland. Not a bad deal for both sides, LA ultimately could not seal the championship deal. With Father Time getting to most of the Lakers roster youth needs to get injected into the lineup quickly, specifically in the front court.
Lakers select C Scott Williams
"Excellent rebounder and excellent defensive player, instantly jumps in the rotation with Sikma. Probably will be the best rebounding center we have ever had. Is not the greatest shooter but he does not look to shoot that much. If we decide to keep Ruland, this will allow us to play Jeff at the 4 and put out a good rebounding tandem."
