NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

If the Los Angeles Lakers had as many assets to work with as there are rumors swirling around the organization, this rebuild would be lightyears further than it currently stands.

We start with Markelle Fultz who, because Danny Ainge is just the greatest, is reportedly not a sure thing to go first overall. Still the question begs asking: Does he fit with the core if he does actually become available?

Then, as there is so much smoke surrounding what the Lakers could do with their pick, we discuss whether a trade makes sense.

Finally, we touch on how adamantly the Lakers seem to be about not even considering any trade involving Brandon Ingram. He’s worth the support, but could it be just another smokescreen?
