Lakers draft rumors: 3 reasons to go with Dennis Smith Jr

Lakers draft rumors: 3 reasons to go with Dennis Smith Jr”

The Lakers seemed locked into Lonzo Ball but now Smith, Josh Jackson and De'Aaron Fox are in the mix.

According to an Orange County Register report, Ball was out of shape during his workout last week with the franchise.

Here's why the Lakers would take Jackson over Ball. "I think you have to look at Lonzo Ball as somebody who is going to be an National Basketball Association star and a multi-year National Basketball Association all-star".

"One of the biggest things I got out of it was just to worry about the things I can control and not to worry about the things that I can't", Jackson said.

It'll be interesting to see where the Lakers select Lonzo. The Lakers' perceived attentiveness in Fox, which has resulted in a private workout(courtesy of CBS Sports) is forcing the Kings to contemplate a trade. While most draft analysts still consider Lonzo the favorite for the No. 2 pick, it's not as clear-cut as we once thought.

Smith Jr.is often forgotten, despite putting up similar stats to Fultz. "Just myself. I don't compare".

He relished competing against other players, including Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon, Iowa State guard Matt Thomas, Georgia State forward Jeremy Hollowell, Loyola guard Milton Doyle and Brazilian forward Wesley Alves Da Silva. They are not impressed, however, with his level of conditioning. Here is what Direct of Scouting at Draft Express, Mike Schmitz, had to say about Ball.

For better and for worse, the Lakers are mindful of not overreacting to individual workouts considering the various restrictions.

When Kimmel asked if he had any interested in the other L.A. team, the Clippers, Ball answered, "They don't really have a chance, no". "I've always been a gym rat", said Fox, who also worked out with Sacramento and will plan to work out for another undisclosed team.

I hope for Lonzo's sake the Lakers take him next week.

"I'm going to have to perform in games", Fox said. "Today I got out of my comfort zone a little bit and working out with their training staff".
