Lakers Welcome Markelle Fultz For Draft Workout

16 Juin 2017

The Maryland-born, University of Washington product is generally expected to be the top pick, but he has stayed in close contact with the Lakers since the draft combine. I just felt like that's the best way to go about approaching whether to enter the NBA Draft or not. So just as a pure fit, you really wouldn't know who's team it is if he's in Boston.

In a draft class as talented as this one, a team could turn things around rather quickly with a top pick.

In a recent appearance on the CSN CelticsTalk Podcast with Kyle Draper and A. Sherrod Blakely, LaVar Ball said he feels the Celtics have no room for his son because they already have an established leader in Isaiah Thomas.

LaVar Ball, Lonzo's father, told Lakers Nation last month that "all we working out for is the Lakers".

"I can see myself playing here", Fultz said, surrounded by championship banners, trophies and retired jerseys painted on the walls of the Toyota Sports Center.

Ball has tremendous length for a point guard at 6-foot-6, and has the craftiness and athleticism to go along with it. But at the end of the day, I'm gonna have to go in and perform in games.

"It's always good to come in some place and work as hard as you can and then get good feedback", said Lydon, who talked to Pelinka earlier.

Rahm kicked his bag and tossed his putter as he bogeyed four of the first eight holes and was 10 back of Fowler through 11. However, as Erin Hills dries out and the wind picks up in the afternoon, Rahm's tally might not look so despairing.

Fultz was in Boston on Monday and Tuesday for interviews, medical testing and a workout. And while you love guys who play with passion and intensity, Jackson has at times let his emotions get the best of him while picking up silly fouls and, more important, getting the kind of attention from officials that no player wants. After his workout, he slighted Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell.

My coaching staff has been really supportive throughout my decision making process, all they had to say were good things.

Afterward, Fultz and his family had lunch with some of the Lakers' brass and also visited the new practice facility that will be unveiled later this summer.

Fultz raised a few eyebrows when he scheduled a workout with the Lakers, and even more when it was reported that he'd meet with the Sacramento Kings, owners of the Nos.

That was only partially the reason Fox was stirred up, and the icing on the cake came when LaVar Ball became more outspoken the moment it became clear his son would be drafted into the National Basketball Association. He's not expected to be much of a 3-point threat in the National Basketball Association, so he needs to develop a more reliable mid-range game especially as the primary ball-handler in pick-and-roll sets.

"I just attack everyone", Fox said. "Lonzo is a great guard, so we're both competing for the same position".

The two famous franchises with the top two picks have one major current difference: While the Celtics were the Eastern Conference's top playoff seed last season, the Lakers are coming out of the worst four-year stretch in franchise history.
