It's not as if Jackson is in Lonzo Ball's overpriced Big Baller Brand shoes, with his father appearing on every sports-based argument show that will have him, claiming the Lakers are the best fit. In fact, he's actually rumored to be one of their final picks for the draft.

In any case, Ball should be a top-five pick in this year's draft.

Why was the workout so important?

According to Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding, who cited sources, Ball "didn't blow the Lakers away or seal any deal in the time he spent with their officials".

Washington's Markelle Fultz and Kansas' Josh Jackson also serve as possible selections with the No. 2 overall pick, as the Boston Celtics hold the first overall selection in the draft.

"Great player; very athletic", Iwundu said of Jackson, who worked out for the Lakers in Sacramento last week. Here is what Direct of Scouting at Draft Express, Mike Schmitz, had to say about Ball. With his ability to play both guard spots, he could fit nicely as a passing guard with D'Angelo Russell, who would be more efficient as a shooter and scorer.

With Ball being rumored in the top three and the Lakers having the number two pick, there's a strong possibility the pick will be Ball.

For his "ultimate three-man National Basketball Association team", Fox went with Russell Westbrook, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal.

For Ball playing for the Lakers is all about the mystique, the young team they have but mostly it's about "being home". He's one of those players that can lift a team really quickly. It certainly doesn't seem to be deterring them too much, despite what some fans believe. But Ball in particular would be "good for business" as a local product, and Magic Johnson has to be keenly aware of that.
