The Los Angeles Lakers have traded the No. 28 pick to the Utah Jazz in exchange for the Nos. 30 and 42 picks in the 2017 Draft, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical. Wojnarowski reports the Jazz will select Tony Bradley of North Carolina with the pick.

The Lakers are wheeling and dealing on draft night, and it remains to be seen if they will use these picks or flip them again, either for picks later in the draft or in a much speculated trade with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George.

The Lakers selected Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick in the draft earlier in the night, adding him to a roster already stocked with young talent, meaning the team may have to move these picks in order to not have a logjam of developing players.
