Lakers hoping to bring Lonzo Ball in for second workout

The Los Angeles Lakers hosted Lonzo Ball for a two-day visit last week, and one report claimed they were not overly impressed with the former UCLA star. Today, Kansas' Josh Jackson will workout out for the team for a second time.

Jackson had a private workout on Tuesday at the Lakers' practice facility, but that doesn't mean the team is any closer to finalizing its plans.

"Team-wise, I think that the Lakers are a better fit", said the never-shutting mouth of LaVar. But it also is likely the Lakers will work out elite guard Markelle Fultz, who is expected by many to be the No. 1 overall selection by the Boston Celtics. The Lakers have always been rumored to be heavily interested in taking UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball second overall.

Fox is a silky-smooth lefty point guard who can play well in the pick-and-roll. The problem? Ball still needed to prove himself to the team at the draft workout this year.

It's unclear when the Lakers will meet with Ball again, or if he will accept the offer - odds are he will considering he wants to be a Laker pretty badly - but it's definitely worth noting ahead o ftime.

The first Grand Slam eligible event will be ESL One Cologne in July a mere week before the PGL Major. The company states that this step will help grow and develop esports to a whole new echelon.

Though Fox did not have the opportunity to fully showcase those skills in an individual workout, he believed he compensated when he played and defended the Lakers' assistant coaches. Fox didn't just hold his own; he owned Ball that night by scoring 39 points and most important, getting the Wildcats the victory.

Smith has stayed steady in the five-to-10 range in the draft, but will get hard looks from the Sacramento Kings, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks.

Jackson is regarded as one of the best defenders in this draft class, an area of great need for the Lakers. It was just something I had to do and I learned from the mistake that I made.

His father LaVar Ball, who averaged 2.2 points a game in college, has already stated he could beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1 and apparently he isn't the only one in the family that feels that way. It's just something that I had to do.
