De'Aaron Fox confident in his game after Lakers workout

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

Joe Lacob will do 'whatever it takes' to keep Curry with Warriors

But it also is likely the Lakers will work out elite guard Markelle Fultz, who is expected by many to be the No. 1 overall selection by the Boston Celtics.

The Suns surely have their eye on Jackson at No. 4, and they may not need to put him through a workout in order to draft him.

Magic Johnson and his staff had the UCLA dynamo in for his first workout with the team last week, but Ball reportedly showed up in suboptimal shape. With the NBA Finals over and all eyes on the draft, we're going to hear more rumors like this and GM's will start employing more smoke screens.

"So I just try to go in and prove the things people don't think I can do. He's always been there for me", Lonzo said.

Lukaku reveals his mind is made up regarding his future
Lukaku's main strength is arguably his huge physical strength. "At the moment the Premier League is the best league for me". Both Premier League clubs want the Belgium striker, 24, to lead their line when the new campaign kicks off in August.

It's going to be very interesting to see how this translates to the National Basketball Association. While the feeling is that Ball is a good fit with the Lakers offensively, Fox and Jackson are gritty defenders and vocal leaders on the court, something the Lakers feel the team is lacking. "Just myself. I don't compare".

Jackson, who can play shooting guard and small forward, touted his versatility and ability to defend both positions. They are not impressed, however, with his level of conditioning.

You can check out the Ball's entire segment below. But if pre-draft workouts count, then it isn't off to the best start. Here is what Direct of Scouting at Draft Express, Mike Schmitz, had to say about Ball. So, it would make sense for the Lakers to scoop him up. Or maybe they're hoping someone else, like Ball, falls to them. "Today I got out of my comfort zone a little bit and working out with their training staff". On the offensive end, his game is still developing, but he boasts a decent jumper and can handle the ball better than most his size.
