Lakers face tall task in Porzingis, Knicks

The Los Angeles Lakers will get another look at a player they could have taken in the 2015 NBA Draft when the New York Knicks visit Sunday.

The Lakers had a shot at versatile 7-foot-3 power forward Kristaps Porzingis but instead selected point guard D'Angelo Russell with the second overall pick. Porzingis went fourth to the Knicks.

Nearly three years later, Russell is no longer in Los Angeles, but Porzingis is still with the Knicks (21-25), and the Lakers (16-29) will need to find a better method to stop him when he visits Staples Center.
