The Los Angeles Lakers are continuing to prepare for the 2018 NBA Draft throughout the month of May and heading into June, and the team announced their latest session would feature Emmett Naar of Saint Mary’s, Barry Brown Jr. of Kansas State, Fletcher Magee of Wofford, Gabe DeVoe of Clemson, Duncan Robinson of Michigan and Obi Enechionyia of Temple.
Word of Enechionyia’s workout had leaked out over the weekend, but Robinson is still probably the most notable name in this batch of prospects.
Or, as Silver Screen and Roll’s own human draft encyclopedia Ben Rosales put it on Twitter:
Aside from Duncan Robinson, this is all a very firm, "Uh, who?" list. https://t.co/OmYAUHFH6B— Ben Rosales (@brosales12) May 21, 2018
Robinson — who is not ranked among ESPN’s top-100 draft prospects — played three years at Michigan, and averaged 9.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game during his most recent collegiate campaign. Most notable though, perhaps, was that he shot 41.9 percent from behind the arc during his three seasons with the Wolverines.
None of the other prospects in this session are ranked among ESPN’s top-100 either, meaning that this is likely just a due diligence workout for the front office as they try to take every swing they can at finding a diamond in the rough for their summer league rosters or the Lakers’ G League team, the South Bay Lakers.
