If the Los Angeles Lakers land outside of the top four in the 2015 NBA Draft, they may not be able to do much better than Duke small forward Justise Winslow -- a top-three type talent in any other draft class.
According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, the team was one of a large group of teams who met with Winslow at the NBA Draft Combine:

Winslow would provide an instant impact on both ends for the Lakers, as he's a skilled small-ball power forward adept at both shooting and locking down on opposing threats big and small.
His 12.6-point, 6.5-rebound average during the 2014-15 regular season was good enough, but he pushed his game to another level in Duke's title run, averaging 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds in the NCAA Tournament.
