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

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

De'Aaron Fox worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers today. While a lot of attention has surrounded UCLA's Lonzo Ball and Kansas' Josh Jackson, Fox remains an interesting enigma.

There was a report yesterday the Lakers have likely promised to draft Jackson, but that has been contradicted.

Dennis Smith Jr. impressed the LA Lakers during his workout, according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News.

Markelle Fultz is the heavy favorite to be taken by the Celtics at No. 1, and Ball feels the former Washington star is a good fit for Boston because he's "more of a scoring guy" who could be moved to shooting guard.

There have also been reported concerns over the influence his outspoken father, LaVar, who claimed before the draft that Ball was only going to work out for the Lakers.




He relished competing against other players, including Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon, Iowa State guard Matt Thomas, Georgia State forward Jeremy Hollowell, Loyola guard Milton Doyle and Brazilian forward Wesley Alves Da Silva. "I think I can contribute to that".

By now, all the Lakers draft rumors are about what they'll do with the second overall pick. 5 and 10. The Kings can play the patient game and wait to see if Fox will fall to them at No. 5. That rarely has been an issue with Fox, who is considered the best defender in this year's draft class.

Though Fox did not have the opportunity to fully showcase those skills in an individual workout, he believed he compensated when he played and defended the Lakers' assistant coaches. I'm just about wrapping it up right now.

"Can I just give you a little advice?", Kimmel asked. Despite being slightly small for his position at 6-foot-8 with shoes, he has a 7-foot-1 wingspan. It's just something that I had to do. "I'm one of the guys I'll do whatever I have to do to help my team win, whether that's playing defense, dive on the floor for loose balls, rebound or score, whatever I have to do to win, I'll do it". But at the end of the day, I'm gonna have to go in and perform in games.
