Walton thinks Russell is a good cutter and is also better shooting off of screens. He will continue to start next to Jordan Clarkson and from yesterday’s performance, we can expect a strong finish from this young man. Looking long-term, the Lakers have a great shot of keeping their top-3 protected. With the top prospects in this year’s draft being point guards, it’s possible the Lakers want to see if Russell can play well off the ball.
