2015 NBA Draft: Los Angeles Lakers Select Ohio State PG D'Angelo Russell

With the second overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers select D'Angelo Russell out of Ohio State.

Position: Point Guard/Shooting Guard

School: Ohio State

Class: Freshman

Measurables: 6’5”, 180 lbs.


Russell burst on the scene for the Buckeyes this season and was their best player from day one, consistently dominating everyone they played. He has limited athleticism, but scouts love his skills, leadership, and assertiveness. Russell projects to be more of a combo guard than a true point guard, but he’ll still be running the show for some team next season.
