Lonzo Balled

To say the Lakers have been busy with potential top draft picks would be a gross understatement. So far the Lakers have worked out De’Aaron Fox, Josh Jackson twice, Dennis Smith Jr. in a joint group, Markell Fultz who is scheduled for Thursday, and Lonzo Ball. Speculation flew off the handle once Jackson, who was visited in Sacramento by Laker brass at first, then came in for a more personal work out in the Lakers practice Facility on Tuesday 6/13. Lonzo Ball would not be left out in the end.



The final day for prospects to work out is Monday so it seems this was a just in time situation for both parties as there were rumors after the Jackson and Fox workouts that they wanted to bring in Ball for one more. According to some the first workout out went well, but there was some questions about his conditioning at the end of the workout. PER: Mark Medina of The Orange County Register


Some observers of Ball’s workout last Wednesday thought he came in out of shape. Ball acknowledged that the “drills get you tired, so you got to stay focused.”


Per Shams Charania the shape of Ball will be tested once again.



This 2nd meeting/workout is a little different than the one prior. It seems that the Lakers want to go through essentially a day in the Life of Lonzo Ball to see if the can determine whatever regimen he is on will show results in the end. It’s no mistake that Magic has demanded that the young core come back more in shape with “Far less body fat”. It seems that players like D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle are certainly taking that to heart. It seems Johnson wants to make sure that Lonzo will be in close to similar shape should the Lakers draft him on the 22nd.
