Arizona forward Aaron Gordon is almost definitely a lottery pick, likely in the 5-10 range, and one landing spot that seems very possible is with the Lakers. He worked out with the team today, and it sounds like he wouldn’t mind landing in Los Angeles. He even went as far as to compare himself to the team’s current superstar, Kobe Bryant.
Aaron Gordon: “Kobe’s psychotic about basketball, and I am, too.”

Psychotic is an interesting choice of words, but probably not inaccurate.
Gordon could be an attractive option to both the Lakers with the seventh pick, or to the Celtics right before them. We’re accustomed to these two franchises battling it out in the Finals, not so much in the lottery portion of the NBA Draft.
