Lonzo Ball has a final pre-draft meeting scheduled with the Lakers on Friday. It’s unclear if there will be another workout.

The meeting will reportedly consist of the Lakers viewing Lonzo’s conditioning and training regimen.


Original story follows:

The 2017 NBA draft is less than two weeks away. The Lakers have a lot of pressure in making the correct selection with the second overall pick in this year’s draft. According to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News, the Lakers are bringing Lonzo Ball for a second workout, and in addition, are also bringing in Markelle Fultz for a separate workout.


Last week, there were reports that the Lakers were not impressed with Ball’s workout, citing his conditioning as the reason for their doubts and hesitant. It is interesting that the Lakers are bringing Ball in for the second time to have a closer examination on his overall game.

So far the Lakers have worked out Josh Jackson, Lonzo Ball, and De’Aaron Fox. Ball is the second player (after Jackson) to be invited for a second workout.

Fultz is also expected to meet privately with the Lakers sometimes this week as well.

The NBA draft will be on June 22.
