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.
The workout will not be at the Lakers’ facility in El Segundo, California, and instead will be held at an undisclosed location, the source said. The Lakers plan to take a detailed look at Ball’s work ethic.
Ball previously had an individual workout in front of the Lakers’ brass, including Magic Johnson, on June 7. One source told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman last week that the Lakers wanted to get a close look at Ball’s unorthodox shooting form. Ball said a significant portion of that workout involved shooting.
Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
