In addition to Ball, the Lakers are considering De'Aaron Fox and Josh Jackson, and are praying Markelle Fultz somehow falls to them at the second overall pick-which at this point is almost impossible.
Jackson told reporters that there wasn't much of a difference between Tuesday's workout and his previous one, other than he was in a bit better shape.
Ball's court vision and ability to make teammates better has the potential to take the young Lakers to the next level, but his game is littered with question marks, especially at the defensive end of the floor. I'm just about wrapping it up right now.
The Lakers are not just looking at Ball for their pick, they are weighing all their options.
"You have guys coming out and competing; they want the same thing you want", Smith Jr. said after his workout on Sunday at the Lakers' practice facility. Check back for more as we continue to get closer to the draft. Not only is Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox considered as one of the Kings' targets, but now there are rumors regarding their interest Washington's Markelle Fultz. But, right now I'm just anxious about myself.
He relished competing against other players, including Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon, Iowa State guard Matt Thomas, Georgia State forward Jeremy Hollowell, Loyola guard Milton Doyle and Brazilian forward Wesley Alves Da Silva.
Facing another opportunity to impress the Lakers' brass, Ball can illustrate why he's deserving of the No. 2 selection. Ball acknowledged that the "drills get you exhausted, so you got to stay focused". The problem? Ball still needed to prove himself to the team at the draft workout this year.
As time goes on, Jackson seems like the more natural pick at two, while Ball would make more sense for the Sixers at No. 3.
"They don't really have a chance, no", Lonzo said. "I've always been a gym rat", said Fox, who also worked out with Sacramento and will plan to work out for another undisclosed team. (Kawhi Leonard came into the National Basketball Association as a similar prospect on both offense and defense.) His versatility on offense, mixed with his ability to guard multiple positions, would make him as a great fit anywhere.
