The Los Angeles Lakers could be the latest team to shake up the draft order.

With the draft just days away, Los Angeles has spoken with at least two other lottery teams in an attempt to acquire another first-round pick, league sources tell ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

The Lakers currently hold the No. 2 and No. 28 pick in this year's draft. While they have reportedly received multiple offers for the second overall selection, the Lakers and are likely to keep the pick and use it on either Lonzo Ball, De'Aaron Fox, or Josh Jackson.

The Lakers have been recently linked to All-Star small forward Paul George in trade talks, but are reportedly unwilling to give up their young assets to acquire him.
