The Lakers have a huge workout day lined up Wednesday.

June 4 is the next big day for the Los Angeles Lakers with a key group lined up for workouts. The team is scheduled to hold pre-draft workouts with Marcus Smart, Noah Vonleh, Doug McDermott, and Nik Stauskasaccording to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine are also listed as "possible" players working out with the Lakers next Wednesday.

Stauskas, LaVine and McDermott would be a reach with the seventh-overall pick, but the Lakers' front office doing their due diligence on prospects across the board doesn't hurt. Smart and Vonleh are the two big names here, with both players potentially being available for the Lakers. Gordon is also in the mix at seven, which means the Lakers could be looking at the majority of the four or five players projected in their range if he does participate.

It's worth noting the Lakers haven't lined up workouts with Dante Exum, who seems like a lock in the top-6, or Julius Randle yet. Vonleh has workouts with the Sacramento Kings, Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic scheduled over the next few weeks, per Goodman.

Also, mandatory STAUSKAS:
