The final selection for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2015 NBA Draft is in, and the Lakers have selected Anthony Brown out of Stanford University with the 34th pick. Brown addresses a huge need at small forward for the Lakers, as he can become a three-and-D wing for the franchise to develop.
The Lakers end their draft festivities with a franchise point guard in D'Angelo Russell, an experienced four-year forward in Larry Nance Jr., and a three-point threat in the wings in Brown. The youth movement is in full effect in Los Angeles with a handful of new prospects set to join Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle and Tarik Black.
Brown put together back-to-back seasons of shooting over 40 percent from deep in his final two seasons at Stanford. He shot 44.1 percent from downtown through his senior year while attempting 4.8 three-point shots per game. He's a pick many feel could be a steal deep in the draft, and the Lakers have a gaping hole on their roster that could become his if he proves to be another gem selected by the basketball operations team.

And thus concludes the Lakers draft' night.
