As soon as the Los Angeles Lakers secured the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft, many assumed they would spend the pick on one-and-done UCLA freshman point guard Lonzo Ball. But following his personal workout with the team this week, the Lakers reportedly came away not sold on him.
According to a report from Bleacher Report, Ball had a fine workout with the team and was “humble and respectful” during his time with the Lakers brass. But he didn’t blow the Lakers away during his time in Los Angeles during workouts or during their meals with him, and now the door could be open for another prospect to make an impression.
