It looks like LaVar Ball’s big talk has finally gotten him and Lonzo what they’ve been wanting ever since the pre-draft process began. ESPN’s Ramona Shelbourne is reporting that the Los Angeles Lakers have scheduled a workout with Lonzo for June 7.
Not only is he getting the workout with the team of his dreams, but he’s getting a solo workout, which is exactly what LaVar wanted so he couldn’t potentially be shown up by anyone he was working out against. Namely Washington’s Markelle Fultz and Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox — the latter of which destroyed him in the NCAA Tournament.
Ball already declined a workout with the Boston Celtics who own the top pick in the draft, but it has been reported that he would be willing to work out with the Philadelphia 76ers who own the third overall pick in the draft. The Lakers currently own the second pick and it is widely believed that they would use it on Ball assuming Fultz gets taken first overall.
