NBA Draft: Lakers trade draft rights of Chuckwudiebere Maduabum to Denver for future second round draft pick
At least the Lakers' concerns following the NBA Draft don't involve worrying about pronouncing the name of Chukwudiebere Maduabum correctly. Or trying to convince the Nigerian star to follow Ron Artest's suit and legally change his name.
The Lakers traded the draft rights of Maduabum to the Denver Nuggets for a future second round draft pick. The 6'9" forward appeared in three games last season with the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League.
