Here’s another reason UCLA’s Lonzo Ball may fall to the Sixers at No. 3 in the June 22 NBA draft.
According to the Orange County Register, the Lakers were impressed with Ball, including his leadership potential, passing and scoring. They are not impressed, however, that he appeared to be out of shape.
Ball acknowledged that the “drills get you tired, so you got to stay focused.”
For better and for worse, the Lakers are mindful of not overreacting to individual workouts considering the various restrictions.
Instead of playing against any prospects, Ball played two-on-two against some of the Lakers’ assistant coaches. Though his workout entailed various shooting drills, Ball did not have the chance to show other things, including how he operates out of the pick-and-roll.
