LA Fans React to Dalton Knecht Draft Pick in First Round

LA Fans React to Dalton Knecht Draft Pick in First Round

The Los Angeles Lakers made arguably the surprise pick of the 2024 NBA Draft, taking wing Dalton Knecht out of the University of Tennessee with the No. 17 overall pick. Knecht was expected to be a lottery pick, with many mock drafts having him go top-10.

He fell probably due to his age but the Lakers will gladly take his talent. Knecht is a great shooter from beyond the three-point line and can simply play basketball at a very high level.

Many fans were anxious that Los Angeles wouldn’t draft him after last season saw a similar situation play out. With him being a lottery-level talent to fall, Knecht can jump right into the Lakers rotation this coming season.

Many fans were excited about the pick, showing support for the team. Here are some of the better reactions across the board from the fans.
