NBA Draft rumors: Josh Jackson to Lakers at No. 2 overall?

It certainly looked like Lonzo Ball was Los Angeles-bound when the Lakers jumped up a spot in the draft lottery and landed the second overall pick last month.

Jackson had a private workout on Tuesday at the Lakers' practice facility, but that doesn't mean the team is any closer to finalizing its plans.

As for what he wanted to show the Lakers, Fox made note of his competitiveness, and penchant for hard work.

As Gambadoro reported, Jackson has not worked out for the Suns yet.

Washington's Markelle Fultz and Kansas' Josh Jackson also serve as possible selections with the No. 2 overall pick, as the Boston Celtics hold the first overall selection in the draft.

Lonzo Ball is rumored to be the favorite of the #Los Angeles Lakers when it comes to the draft.

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. It sounds so simple, but I went home and I thought about that a lot. But if pre-draft workouts count, then it isn't off to the best start.

While Lonzo is considered a top-two talent in the upcoming NBA Draft on June 22, the Lakers, whom Ball has expressed interest in playing for, haven't committed to him at No. 2. Jackson's best position in the National Basketball Association might be a four, which may sound insane but those that cover the draft think if he adds some weight, playing at the four might be his best fit.

"I felt like I shot the ball well", Fox said. "College is over. I just 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 makes everyone around him better not only because of his passing but the way he spreads the court open. Both can play off the ball, and you could argue both should be used more in that role than as a primary ball handler, but perhaps the Lakers feel differently and still like Russell leading the offense in a primary role.
