The Los Angeles Lakers are eyeing former Colorado forward Tristan Da Silva for the upcoming NBA Draft. Alongside the Lakers, the Sacramento Kings, Miami Heat, and Philadelphia 76ers are also interested in Da Silva, according to reports from Jeremy Woo from ESPN.

The Lakers hold the 17th overall pick, while the Kings, Heat, and 76ers pick 13th, 15th, and 16th, respectively. This means the Lakers will need these teams to pass on Da Silva if they hope to draft him.

Da Silva, 23, spent four years at Colorado, where he improved his stats each season. He finished his college career with averages of 16 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.1 steals per game in his final season. He played a significant role in Colorado's 26-11 season and their run to the NCAA Sweet 16, logging a career-high 34 minutes per game.

During the NCAA Tournament, Da Silva was a standout, scoring at least 17 points in all three games. He earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2023 and second-team All-Pac-12 in 2024.

The NBA Draft is set for June 26, and the Lakers, under new head coach J.J. Redick, will make their first pick. While Da Silva is a strong contender, the team will consider other prospects as well.
