Lakers working out 2nd round prospects

The Lakers have brought in a few prospects recently, such as Tacko Fall (UCF) and TJ Williams (Northeastern), and are on track to bring in a few more in the near future. On Friday we’ll see Tony Bradley, a freshman big man from the NCAA Champion Tar Heels.

Along with Bradley, the Lakers will bring in Isaac Hamilton, a 23-year old senior guard from UCLA. Hamilton averaged 14.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists this year with UCLA. Not quite Lonzo Ball, but still deserving of a workout in LA on Thursday.

On Thursday, the Lakers will also workout with:

Zak Irvin, Senior G, Michigan. 13.0P – 4.5R – 3.0A in 35.4 MPG

Davon Reed, Senior G, Miami (FL). 14.9P – 4.8R – 2.4A in 35.3 MPG.

Trevon Bluiett, Junior G, Xavier. 18.5P – 5.7R – 2.1A in 35.1 MPG.

Chance (almost the rapper) Comanche, Sophomore C, Arizona. 6.3P – 3.6R in 18.1 MPG.

Jaylen Johnson, Junior F, Louisville. 8.0P – 5.8R in 20.5 MPG.

Update following Bresnahan tweet below –

Another player was added to the list for workouts Friday, Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes. Hayes is a senior forward who averaged ~34 minutes per game over the past 3 years. Just like the others, he was a solid college role player, averaging 14.0P, 6.6R, and 2.7A per game, but isn’t expected to be drafted, according to DraftExpress.com.

Although it’s a high chance none of these players will be taken with the Lakers 28th pick, these workouts are always good on both ends, as the Lakers do have to fill a summer league roster and have the option to sign any undrafted free agent. Who knows, maybe the Lakers will like one of these guys and make a trade for a mid-late 2nd round pick.
