Could Markelle Fultz fall in the 2017 NBA Draft?

14 June 2017

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) comes away with a rebound during the first half of the Champions Classic on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in NY.

It has been reported some members of the Lakers' front office like Jackson, who may be the best two-way player in this draft.

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

Of course, Gambadoro did suggest that the promise could have came from Philly, but that wouldn't make much sense since the Sixers haven't even worked out Jackson yet and he isn't a natural fit for the team.

Every draft projection seemingly has Fultz going first to Boston and Ball second to the Lakers. Fox also listed Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell as one of those players in case the Lakers pass on Fox. It sounds so simple, but I went home and I thought about that a lot. He wants to be there, and the Lakers haven't given any indication that they aren't interested. That rarely has been an issue with Fox, who is considered the best defender in this year's draft class.

To collect even more money on Monday , the Seahawks made things slightly more hard : Lacy had to weigh 250 pounds or less. Last season he weighed in at 234 pounds and rushed for a career-low 360 yards, after only appearing in five games.

With nearly everyone's money on Lonzo Ball to go to the Lakers with the second overall pick, Fox could be swoop in to surprise us all. LaVar has not indicated that reports like this one concern him or his son, but it will be worth monitoring as we get closer to the draft.

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.

Lonzo had 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game in his freshman season at UCLA. But I'm just being realistic and thinking about it. It's just something that I had to do. On the offensive end, his game is still developing, but he boasts a decent jumper and can handle the ball better than most his size.

Jackson has always been another favorite in the organization.
