No the Lakers won’t be passing on Lonzo Ball
Ever since NBA Draft Lottery night, we basically know the first two picks in the NBA Draft. Markelle Fultz will go No.1 to the Celtics and LaVar’s dreams come true when his son (Lonzo) is drafted right behind Fultz to the Lakers with the second overall pick.
Since that date, there have been multiple reports saying Magic Johnson and the Lakers front office aren’t sold on drafting Lonzo Ball.
Meantime, several NBA executives told ZAGSBLOG they don’t buy an Internet report that the Lakers will pass on Ball, who is slated to work out for them on Wednesday.
One source suggested the Lakers might be open to trading down and want to create the impression that they are interested in Kansas’ Josh Jackson so teams who like him would consider trading up to get the No. 2 pick. The Lakers then could still get Ball or Fox after the second pick, the source suggested.
There are so many smokescreens this time of year. The Lakers clearly want people to believe they have doubts about Ball, whether or not they actually do. They’ve convinced some, though obviously not everyone.
So when the NBA Draft tips-off Thursday June 22nd, not only will MFST be LIVE with our NBA Draft show, we will see Lonzo walk up to the stage, put on a Lakers cap and shake Adam Silver’s hand.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/no-the-lakers-wont-be-passing-on-lonzo-ball/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/lonzo-ball-lakers-497x327.jpg?fit=497%2C327&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/lonzo-ball-lakers-497x327.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1LA LakersNBAPacific DivisionRecent PostsLonzo BallEver since NBA Draft Lottery night, we basically know the first two picks in the NBA Draft.
