NBA Mock Draft Pick #27 -- Rashad Vaughn, Guard, UNLV

SB Nation's Lakers blog, Silver Screen and Roll, explains the pick:

Vaughn's a player the Lakers took a look at during the pre-draft workout process and fills out many needs. He's one of the youngest players in the draft at 18 but has great size to play shooting guard at the NBA level. His potential as a physical, athletic defender is really the cherry on top for why LA singled him out. He shot 38.3 percent from deep in college and proved capable of hitting from NBA-three range. The Lakers desperately need help on the perimeter offensively, and Vaughn is an intriguing prospect to work with.
