The NBA draft date is just around the corner, approaching on June 22, many teams arranging workouts with the right players to make their pick before the draft date, the Los Angeles Lakers seem to be open to the possibility of trading their No. 2 pick in the upcoming NBA draft [VIDEO].

It appears that the Lakers are already making calls about this trade, and having Lonzo Ball on the team might still be a huge question if they make the trade possible. The Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka said that they were looking into other options to trade the overall pick in the draft. The UCLA point guard might have turned out to be the right person, Ball's workouts with the team went well, and most of the fans believed that he could be their next star.

Are the Lakers trying to acquire Paul George?

It is evident that the Lakers are looking out for their best options. While rumors have been swirling around the Lakers and the Indiana Pacers, it seems that the Lakers have an eye on Paul George. The biggest question is if the Lakers are willing to risk their No.2 pick for George. It is a tough decision plus George will be a free agent next summer.
