Los Angeles Lakers Having Josh Jackson In For Second Workout

Today, Kansas' Josh Jackson will workout out for the team for a second time.

There was a report yesterday the Lakers have likely promised to draft Jackson, but that has been contradicted. Before the Lakers would bring Jackson in for a second workout Tuesday at their practice facility, Fox said he believed he addressed his weaknesses and highlighted his strengths.

Markelle Fultz recently had a workout with the Celtics that was not overly impressive. ESPN's Jeff Goodman spoke about Fultz's workout with Boston. Before much of the pre-draft process, it seemed like a sure thing Lavar Ball would get his wish and the Lakers would take the UCLA PG.

Fox is a silky-smooth lefty point guard who can play well in the pick-and-roll. "But any good player is going to have attention on him at times, and I'm pretty used to it by now". The problem? Ball still needed to prove himself to the team at the draft workout this year.

"When I was in Sac I was working out with my trainer", Jackson said. With the picks the Kings have, could they aim even higher in the draft?

"He just wants the best for his kids", Lonzo said. Smith is worth a look late in re-draft leagues.

"Can I just give you a little advice?", Kimmel asked. "College is over. I just kind of put that behind me".

During his one season in Lexington, the 6-foot-3 Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Ball's court vision and ability to make teammates better has the potential to take the young Lakers to the next level, but his game is littered with question marks, especially at the defensive end. As you can see in the highlight video below, he is an explosive athlete who can consistently make plays above the rim.
