#17: LA Lakers select Tristan da Silva 

One of the more NBA-ready prospects in the draft, da Silva is a nice fit as a shooter around LeBron and AD. 

You do have to wonder how much say new coach JJ Redick will have in the draft, and whether he will push for best player available given that his tenure could outlast both of his stars. 

If not, grabbing a shooter who can play right away makes sense for LA.
