Rumor Central: Are Lakers shopping Jordan Clarkson?


Silver made the salient point that once prodigious UCLA guard Lonzo Ball is drafted, his father will fade into the background somewhat, as most National Basketball Association parents tend to do. He is unlikely to take part in workouts alongside other prospects, and LaVar Ball has already said that the Lakers are the only team that he will work out for prior to the draft.

The Lakers own the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, which will take place in NY on June 22.

"That's all we working out for is the Lakers", LaVar Ball told reporters after the lottery. Markelle Fultz is expected to be chosen by Boston with the draft's first pick.

Lonzo Ball averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists in his one-and-done season at UCLA. It's become so real that Ball's camp, which started the process saying he'd only meet with the Lakers, have expressed a willingness to meet with the Philadelphia 76ers and possibly the Sacramento Kings depending on how things go with the Lakers. Ball also shot 55.1% from the field and 41.2% from three-point range.

There is nothing unusual about this, given Trump's penchant for late-night tweets that often result in widespread controversy. Instead, Melania Trump 's husband undoubtedly went to watch a game on TV, dropping her smartphone on the living room table.

The Sixers decided in February that they weren't going to deal with Nerlens Noel's restricted free agency, so they shipped him to Dallas at the National Basketball Association trade deadline.

With only so much room on the bench, it appears that Clarkson could end up being the odd man out. "Just the Lakers. There's nobody else that we need to work out for". It has been no secret that the Lakers have their eyes on Ball. The original deals that Nike, adidas, and Under Armour were going to offer would be five years, $10 million.

As the summer moves along, don't be surprised if the Lakers find themselves in trade rumors involving Paul George. "It could attract free agents, and this year the UCLA top prospect".
