The Los Angeles Lakers have scheduled their second (and likely final) pre-draft workout with UCLA guard Lonzo Ball for Friday, according to Shams Charania of the Vertical.
According to Charania, this won’t just be any workout. The Lakers front office will instead watch Ball “during his full daily training regimen of conditioning/on-court drills.” Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times adds that the session won’t be at the Lakers’ practice facility.
With the Lakers reportedly “split” over whether or not to draft Ball or Kansas wing Josh Jackson, watching how Ball trains makes sense, especially given that the Lakers were reportedly not thrilled with his level of conditioning during their first workout with the one-and-done prospect.
However, it has also been reported that the the Lakers will be making their decision on a lot more than just how players fare in their one-on-none workouts.
The Lakers already had a second workout with Jackson, and will work out Washington guard Markelle Fultz Thursday. The NBA Draft is June 22.
