Los Angeles Lakers

The 2016 NBA Draft did not disappoint in regards to huge trades and plenty of teams making decisions to affect their future for better or worse. The first two selections of Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram left little mystery to begin the night but the Boston Celtics made sure the NBA world could be confused immediately with the stunning selection of Jaylen Brown from California. The rest of the night followed with teams picking for other teams, poor draft entry decisions from three freshmen, continued stashing of international players and of course the blockbuster deal that sent Serge Ibaka from Oklahoma City to Orlando for Victor Oladipo.

The Lakers made it official in their efforts to move on without coach Phil Jackson by hiring former Cavaliers head man Mike Brown. He is expected to sign a deal worth about $4.5 million a season over four years for a total of about $18 million. Brown posted a 272-138 record in five seasons with the Cavaliers before he was fired after the 2010 season.
