Jesse Buss says Lakers want shooting, BBIQ and defensive skills from draft picks

“Shooting is a premium for us right now, given that we didn’t shoot the ball too well from the free throw line or the perimeter last year, so we’re always looking to improve in that area. Also players who can just think the game, high basketball IQ players,” Buss said during an appearance on Spectrum Sportsnet. ”Another thing would be defensive ability. Guys that can switch and guard multiple positions are important to us.”
