Lakers Draft Rumors: Los Angeles “Really Looking Hard” At Josh Jackson

But don’t worry, we’re not finished just yet.There’s nothing I can ever do to really pay you back for all you’ve done for me. To that end, the Lakers, who presumably would just select whoever’s left from the Fultz-Ball duo, would actually have to make a choice if they’re both still there.The 6-foot-3, 170-pound Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game during his freshman year at Kentucky. Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox, who got the better of Ball in this year’s Sweet 16, could be L.A.’s pick.Fox clearly outplayed Ball, scoring 39 points to Ball’s 10. L.A. has worked him out twice, and there’s even been speculation that the Lakers might have promised Jackson they will draft him.Others in the National Basketball Association will follow suit, Fox said. “Kyrie was the No. 1 pick and Isaiah was the last pick, and you see how that really worked out”.The Lakers are looking to find a player that will help them get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013. “College doesn’t matter at this point”. The team has been active in trade discussions, taking and making calls about the selection over the course of the last month, according to The Los Angeles Times.Fultz termed the decision to work out for the Lakers as a “family decision”. A source told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that Friday’s workout was “solid”, but earlier reports indicated that the Lakers may prefer Kansas’s Josh Jackson or Washington’s Markelle Fultz, if either is available.Fox’s NCAA Tournament performance certainly boosted his draft stock, and he’s expected to be selected around the top-five of next week’s NBA Draft. No matter what Lonzo accomplishes in the National Basketball Association, it’s always going to seem like a disappointment to the public because of a few months of his father’s ridiculous comments.I’ll never forget the game we played against a travel team from NY a few years back. You made your living training athletes – you still do – so I put my trust in you. “If there’s anything, it’s really my body and shooting”.Asked after Friday’s predraft workout why it’s been so hard to get high-level players to visit, Sixers senior director of basketball operations Vince Rozman replied, “I don’t know that it’s hard”.Fox’s name might be the most surprising of the group.”I haven’t gotten assurances from anyone”, Fox said.
