Lakers Podcast: Could the Lakers really draft Josh Jackson over Lonzo Ball?

Also: Should they?

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Purdue vs Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Lonzo Ball’s position as the Los Angeles Lakers’ top choice has certainly wavered over the last week or so, with Josh Jackson making a legitimate charge over the span of his two workouts in front of Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Luke Walton.

The question remains, however: Are the Lakers really considering the wing from Kansas, or are they putting up a smokescreen to potentially convince some desperate team to move up and ensure they get their guy?

To discuss that, plus Jackson’s fit with the Lakers, the guys were joined by’s Scott Chasen (who covered Jackson at Kansas) and Silver Screen & Roll’s own Kansas alum and Jayhawks superfan Tom Fehr.

Also covered in the discussion: The details behind Jackson’s off-court issues in his time at Kansas.

Harrison also complains about how rumor season has made his life miserable, which is also always fun to hear about.
