The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to acquire another first-round pick for Thursday’s NBA draft, league sources told ESPN.

Paul George has told the Indiana Pacers that he will leave the organization as a free agent after next season, according to The Vertical, which also reported that he would prefer to sign with the Lakers once he is a free agent.

With LaVar on hand, Lakers and Lonzo revisit
Lonzo Ball had a second workout with the Lakers on Friday, this time with outspoken father LaVar attending. Ball did his normal on-court routine, ran hills and lifted weights, showing the team’s brass how he conditions.
The Lakers have engaged at least two teams in the lottery, sources said, as they search for players to improve their outside shooting and perimeter defense.

Los Angeles currently holds the second and 28th picks in this year’s draft. While there have been inquires on the No. 2 pick, sources said it remains unlikely the Lakers would trade out of that position.

The Lakers are giving strong consideration to UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, Kansas’ Josh Jackson and Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox with the No. 2 pick.
