With the NBA draft just over 2 weeks away, rumors are swirling on who the Lakers will select with their No. 2 pick. Although all signs point to Lonzo Ball still being the favorite, several reports have surfaced conflicting that belief.

Some have said that the Lakers don’t see Ball as a star and that they won’t draft him unless Ball blows them away in his workout this week. There have also long been reports that some in the Lakers organization are big fans of De’Aaron Fox and Josh Jackson.

The rumors will continue to spread as we close into the NBA Draft, but things won’t become clearer until the Lakers bring all of these top prospects in for workouts and interviews.
