Lakers Aren't Completely Sold On Lonzo Ball

It's just that the way he is framing things, including suggesting that the only reason his sons should not use degrading language toward their mother is because of the many tasks they can expect her to perform for them (what about all the women who won't have similar expectations?), seems potentially problematic.

They are doing their best to keep quiet on their draft vision.

Recently, Ball worked out for the Lakers.

Jackson is another versatile player in the draft. The 6-foot-7 small forward earned his degree in psychology.

Also, it helps the team in the fact they would be closer to a complete roster and they wouldn't have to worry about finding places for certain positions. "Some things that 18-year-olds can't bring to the game with the knowledge, and also with being able to guard".

With the NBA Draft getting closer and closer, Lakers rumors are heating up. They are bound to find an athlete.

Now, with the draft less than two weeks away, that's changed. These hiring's coincided with team owner Jeanie Buss assuming complete control of the franchise, thus representing a fresh start for all involved.

They wouldn't need a veteran player although the Warriors grabbed a few veterans to play off the bench.

"....it would be impossible not to start with his elite transition play".

However, the Lakers view Russell as a combo guard, and Walton played him primarily at shooting guard late last season.

When it came to the boys breaking his rules, LaVar said he had no problem using physical punishment - "a couple of hits upside the head" to NBA-bound Lonzo after he missed curfew and had a run-in with police or using a "belt or something" on youngest son LaMelo - before quickly backtracking.

Other players on the Los Angeles Lakers radar include Josh Jackson of Kansas.

Jackson is closer to landing in LA after his workout and supporters who believe in him. It has more to do with the prospects at the top-end of this draft being so compelling.

First, Lakers' legend and Hall-of-Famer, Magic Johnson, was named the team's president of basketball operations, replacing long-time incumbent Mitch Kupchak.
