And the Lakers worked out Kansas forward Josh Jackson later Tuesday afternoon. It is arguable that the Lakers' biggest area of need is a prolific scoring point guard.

For the 2017 Draft, those players are Markelle Fultz - the consensus No. 1 pick - and Josh Jackson, a versatile hard-nosed wing who has mostly been projected to the 76ers at No. 3.

"When it's winning time, there is no five-man (center) on the court", Jackson said. Being a young team, would pretty much feel like college again.

I suppose it's possible that Ainge has a nagging gut feeling that Jackson is his guy, not Fultz, and selects him in a moment of impulsiveness.

"I haven't gotten assurances from anyone", Fox said.

But now Lonzo Ball is doing some damage control on his draft stock - by doing some playful damage to his dad in a hilarious Foot Locker commercial for Father's Day.

With that becoming clear, ESPN experts Chad Ford and Kevin Pelton discussed the likelihood of each player, Ball, Jackson and Fox, being taken with the No. 2 pick.

At the time of this writing, the Alexandria Police Department had reported the suspect as being "in custody and not a threat". Eventually a sniper team arrived and surrounded the area to allow lawmakers to leave the dugout with protection, he said.

Then the shot cuts to Lonzo. Those abilities give Ball the edge on Jackson in terms of star power.

Despite a not so great shooting performance during his Celtics workout, Goodman told Dale & Holley during a radio interview on Friday that the visit did not drop Fultz's draft value with the team.

Q: On why he came to workout for the Lakers given that most mock drafts have him going No. 1: Fultz: I think it was a family decision, just going through it. Giving everybody the opportunity.

The countdown to the 2017 NBA Draft is upon us. The Kings would love it if he fell to them at No. 5. With the Lakers now loaded with forwards, they may look for someone that can help defensively.

Los Angeles also had Lonzo Ball from UCLA in to work out last week.

The two famous franchises with the top two picks have one major current difference: While the Celtics were the Eastern Conference's top playoff seed last season, the Lakers are coming out of the worst four-year stretch in franchise history. "That's to be against the top get to compete against them". Ball reportedly seemed "out of shape", which has risen doubt in the Lakers executives. They all got different types of games. The options do not disappear if the Lakers decide to trade down. On The Bill Simmons Podcast, Bill and I discussed the National Basketball Association scuttlebutt that the Lakers are looking to swap positions with the Suns: The deal would move L.A. down from no. 2 to no. 4; Phoenix's cost of doing business involves eating Luol Deng's albatross contract.

Markelle Fultz wants to be the first player chosen in the National Basketball Association draft next week, either by the Boston Celtics or whatever team ends up with their No. 1 pick.
