NBA: Washington Wizards at Los Angeles Lakers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers are within a few weeks of making their latest biggest decision in recent franchise history. For most, the choice has already been made. Lonzo Ball is the local kid who also is probably the best fit and most talented available player.

Still, the Lakers will do their due diligence, and so will we.

Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer joined the podcast to talk about what the Lakers might need, fit versus best player available and how all that seems to circle back to Lonzo Ball.

Tjarks also helped inform Anthony and Harrison on potential targets with the Lakers’ 28th pick. A ton can happen as the draft unfolds, but there are a couple great fits as most mock drafts currently stand.

Before that conversation, the guys talk about recent reports about Jordan Clarkson’s potential availability. After Tjarks, the guys spoke about Jerry West’s interest in coming back to L.A. and Timofey Mozgov’s honesty.
