The Los Angeles Lakers pre-draft workouts continue, bringing in a group featuring two first-round prospects that could be in play with the 27th and 34th picks in the 2015 NBA Draft. Justin Anderson (Virginia), Askia Booker (Colorado), Anthony Brown (Stanford), Charles Jackson (Tennessee Tech), Stefan Nastic (Stanford) and Delon Wright (Utah) are the second group of players auditioning. Both Anderson and Wright are projected as first-round selections, while the remainder of players are mostly fringe second-round talent.

Anderson had an impressive season with Virginia, averaging 12.2 points while shooting 45.2 percent from beyond the arc on four three-point attempts per game. He also put up the second-best max vertical at the NBA Draft combine, notching a 43' mark that certainly raised his draft stock. The Lakers have struggled to find depth at either wing position, and Anderson could be an option at No. 27, or in any potential trade-up scenarios.

His team has been preparing to impress NBA scouts, and if you're interested, DraftExpress has a video of one of his  pre-draft workouts:

Wright could help add additional depth to the Lakers' backcourt, and CBS Sports' Sam Vecenie projected Delon to the Lakers at No. 27 in his post-lottery mock draft. He's limited as a shooter and finisher at the rim, though, but could be a defensive specialist (check out the DraftExpress scouting video).

Kupchak expects to hold several rounds of workouts, mentioning upwards of 80 players for the Lakers to scout. The process moves onward in Los Angeles.
