Report: Lakers Aren't Completely Sold On Lonzo Ball

The Lakers are reportedly not dead set on acquiring Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick.

Lonzo Ball to the Los Angeles Lakers has felt like a sure thing ever since the Lakers landed the No. 2 spot in the draft, but according to a report from Bleacher Report, that may be in question.

Ball apparently didn't "blow the Lakers away" during his workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday, and now management is considering Markelle Fultz (if he drops to them), Josh Jackson and even De'Aaron Fox.

Per Bleacher Report:

Yet Ball also didn’t blow the Lakers away or seal any deal in the time he spent with their officials Tuesday and Wednesday, according to sources.

The Lakers remain intrigued by Markelle Fultz and Josh Jackson, and to a lesser extent De'Aaron Fox, along with Ball for their No. 2 overall pick.

They are hopeful they can get Fultz in for a workout despite speculation that he would work out only for the Boston Celtics, who hold the No. 1 overall pick. Lakers officials just went to meet and scout Jackson in Sacramento on Thursday, and Fox is coming in to see the Lakers on Tuesday.

The 2017 NBA Draft is June 22.
