Lakers Podcast: Should the Lakers trade the second overall pick?

It's time for some offseason discussion.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

It's safe say there has been plenty of news about the Los Angeles Lakers over the last few since the team fired head coach Byron Scott. The team has plucked Luke Walton from the Golden State Warriors bench to replace Scott as the team's head coach, Julius Randle and D'Angelo Russell have been invited to join the Team USA Select Team in Las Vegas this summer, and the Lakers received the second overall pick in the NBA Draft lottery last Tuesday.

One thing that hasn't happened since then? A special, live edition of the Lakers Lounge with host Anthony Irwin and yours truly, Harrison Faigen. We decided to change that today to talk about all of the news and rumors surrounding the purple and gold, including Mitch Kupchak's radio appearance on Thursday in which he suggested that the team is unlikely to trade their first round pick and what comes next for the Lakers in the offseason.
