The Lakers picked guard Patrick Beverley of the University of Arkansas with the first of their two second-round selections. Beverley played last season in the Ukraine, and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchack indicated he might play overseas again next season. Still one more pick to go for the Lakers, at No. 59.
UPDATE: The Lakers traded Beverley to the Miami Heat for $1.5 million and a second-round pick in 2011.
