What to make of Josh Jackson canceling pre-draft workout with Boston


Some have Jackson ahead of Fultz in their mock drafts and big boards, but Markelle Fultz is still the likely pick at #1 despite a poor shooting day at his two-day visit with the team. Jackson has yet to hold a public workout for the Sixers, so logic suggests it's the Lakers at pick No. 2 who are whispering sweet nothings into his ear.

"From what I'm told, Fultz didn't shoot the ball exceptionally well in his workout in Boston, but they know he can shoot the ball".

The Lakers had UCLA's Lonzo Ball in last week. With that in mind, what would be the best 3-on-3 team you could field with only Kentucky players?

The more I look at this, Jackson probably fits the Lakers better than Lonzo Ball.

They haven't had a workout with Jackson, even though he could be in play for them at No. 4.

How do D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and every other Laker feel about it being Lonzo's team? After that pick, the Lakers could take anyone they want - there's no need to promise Jackson they'll pick him.

Now, his own team might have more reason to begrudge him. But the NBA's structure sets such organizations up with high lottery odds, enabling them to stockpile young, talented players.

It's easy to envision Ingram and Jackson terrorizing Lakers opponents on the wing a few years down the line, a welcome visual for Lakers fans exhausted of watching the team sit at the bottom of the league in defensive efficiency year after year. Jackson touted his quickness, versatility, athleticism and passing. I'm just about wrapping it up right now.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is a solid National Basketball Association ready point guard who averaged over 18 points per game and over six assists per game at NC State last season.
