Could the Los Angeles Lakers be grooming D'Angelo Russell to be their next shooting guard?
Just hours after Russell scored a career-high 40 points in a loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Luke Walton announced his intention to play the second-year guard "off the ball" a lot more during the remainder of the season:
Luke Walton says he thinks DAngelo can play effectively off ball because he's a good cutter and his highest 3% is off a screen.— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) March 20, 2017
Russell made the start for shooting guard Nick Young (illness) while playing alongside Jordan Clarkson.
More importantly, this may be setting the stage for the Lakers to draft a point guard with their likely top-three draft pick in 2017. The franchise has been linked to UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball and considering Russell has yet to prove he can be a great ball distributor, the Lakers may be setting up Russell to be a shooting guard in the future.
