Los Angeles does not want to give up their position at the top of the draft, so they offered the No. 2 pick to the Sacramento Kings for the No. 5 and No. 10 picks, but were turned down, according to TNT's David Aldridge.

The Pacers are known to want the No. 2 pick from the Lakers, and they don't seem to be willing to accept any packages from the Lakers that don't include that selection. The ClippersWizardsRockets and Cavs are also talking with Indiana about a possible George trade.

If the Lakers do keep the No. 2 pick, they're expected to take Lonzo Ball.

The 6-foot-6, 190-pound Ball averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game while leading UCLA to a 31-5 record this season.
