Oklahoma University’s Buddy Hield was at the Los Angeles Lakers training facility on Saturday for his second pre-draft workout with the Lakers. Prior to his interview with the media, Hield was running catch-and-shoot drills with the assistant coaches. Unsatisfied with his performance during the three-point catch-and-shoot drill the first time around (Hield shot 10-20), Hield asked to go a second time.
The second time around, Hield improved to 14-20, but still wasn’t satisfied and asked to go a third time. What did he shoot the third time around? Watch our video above and head here to check out his interview.
The 2016 Wooden Award Winner, knocked down 147 threes last season, far more than any other college player. That amount is also tied for the highest total mark any college basketball player has achieved, since Steph Curry made 162 back in 2008. With the way the NBA game is trending, the three-point shot surely holds more value now than in years past.
The Lakers hold the second pick in the upcoming draft, and Hield has been projected to go as high as number three. Could the Lakers take a risk on Hield or possibly make a trade? We’ll just have to wait and see until June 23rd.
