Los Angeles Lakers: Former draft pick Svi Mykhailiuk playing well for Detroit Pistons

The Los Angeles Lakers made a few moves before last season’s trade deadline that affected their future. One trade that isn’t talked about enough is when they traded wing Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk.

Svi Mykhailiuk was basically given away as the Lakers traded him and a second-round pick to the Detroit Pistons for Reggie Bullock. Bullock was supposed to be the piece the Lakers got to help them make the playoffs. Instead, he averaged only 9.3 points on 34 percent from deep and the Lakers missed the postseason.

The move that you hear about more is the Ivica Zubac trade.
