Riding his wave, he declared for the 2015 NBA Draft.
The Los Angeles Lakers claimed him with the second pick of the draft. He made the NBA All-Rookie Second Team in his first year with the Lakers. In his second year he notched his first 40-point game. The Lakers traded D'Angelo to the Brooklyn Nets in 2017. In Brooklyn, D'Angelo has found his stride, earning a spot in the starting line-up and earning the Nets a vicious reputation as competitors.
