Report: Lakers all but set on Lonzo Ball, future looking increasingly bright

There has been a lot of discussion of late about what the Lakers will do with the No. 2 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft. The Lakers taking Southern California native Lonzo Ball has long been the most-likely scenario, and despite reports that the team was less than pleased with Ball’s initial workout, it appears this is still the case. 

From Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding:

Hotshot UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball desperately wants to be drafted by his hometown team, and the Lakers are nearing a final decision to select him with the No. 2 overall pick, according to league sources.

Some final planning and discussion remains to be done before the draft Thursday, per team sources, but Ball logged quality time with Lakers president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka in a second predraft meeting Friday.

The Lakers, especially Pelinka, have tried to keep an open mind throughout workouts and interviews to settle on the best player available to them. But an appreciation for Ball’s all-around upside has emerged that transcends the local fanfare over him and the constant publicity his father generates. 

OK, so the Lakers appear to be pretty set on Ball as their future point guard. What that means for D’Angelo Russell and/or Jordan Clarkson is up in the air, but after Article source: http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/report-lakers-all-but-set-on-lonzo-ball-future-looking-increasingly-bright/
