It’s not often the Los Angeles Lakers pick as high as No. 2, but they have a lottery pick for the second straight year. Just about everyone assumes Jahlil Okafor is the clear choice there (once the Wolves take Karl-Anthony Towns at No. 1), but Kevin O’Connor of SB Nation’s CelticsBlog isn’t sure that’s the right move.
O’Connor joined NESN.com Celtics beat writer Zack Cox on the podcast to explain his reservations on Okafor and break down the rest of his projected top five. We also hear from Arkansas’ Bobby Portis and Michigan State’s Travis Trice, who will have very different expectations come draft night.
