Lakers split on Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson at No. 2

LaVar and Lonzo Ball on Jimmy Kimmel: “(Clippers) don't have a chance”

The Los Angeles Lakers are bringing in former UCLA star Lonzo Ball for a second pre-NBA draft workout on Friday, a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Fultz is a great scorer, perhaps the best in this draft, but the Lakers never really seriously pursued him - as he likely will be the first overall pick.

The top two picks annually square off against one another with the Lakers having played Philadelphia 76ers and Jahlil Okafor two years ago and Ben Simmons and the 76ers last season. If he is not, look for a trade early in the draft, as the rumored promise Josh Jackson was given was likely meant for another National Basketball Association team. "They've all got different types of games". "If (Fultz and Ball are) drafted above me I'd be fine with it, I'd be cool with it".

To me, the choice is Ball or Jackson, and if I were drafting today, I'd probably take Ball. Lonzo's a great guard. "My dad and I both love the humor of the spot and I'm glad I got to have a little fun around the topic before going to the league".

Lydon has heard he is projected to land somewhere late in the first round, which could make him available for the Lakers, which have the 28th pick.

Ball recounts the embarrassing moments his father put him through, like the time he criticized his high school coach during a game.

When the Lakers wound up with the second overall pick after the lottery, many thought that the script was already written, the story too good not to come true.

It'll be interesting to see where the Lakers select Lonzo. As such, the fit with Russell is important-if the Lakers don't make a trade, of course. The Lonzo to the Lakers talk has been big for months - ever since LaVar said his son wouldn't play for any other franchise. Just team defense and just being locked in every possession. As for his preference on where he'd like to be drafted, Fultz said, "I would like to go one [to the Celtics], but wherever I land is where I go". Fox didn't just hold his own; he owned Ball that night by scoring 39 points and most important, getting the Wildcats the victory. I'm athletic, long, lanky - but I'm just trying to show that I've improved since the end of the season at Kansas.

Lonzo stars in an excellent new Father's Day Foot Locker commercial, released Wednesday, in which incoming National Basketball Association draft prospects discuss their memories of growing up with their fathers. Thursday's workout in El Segundo took place to address that exact possibility. "They're right here in L.A. where I'm from".
