Lonzo Ball worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday and reiterated his desire to be drafted by his hometown team.
“Of course,” Ball answered during an eight-minute media session that followed the workout. “It’s home.”
If the Lakers don’t draft Ball, he’s prepared to play for any team.
“I’ll go to any team and just do what I do,” Ball said. “Play basketball.”
The Lakers wanted to get a close look at Ball’s unorthodox shooting form.
“I got positive vibes,” Ball said of his workout. “It was a lot of fun.”
Ball will do medical testing Thursday morning before heading back home. He was not accompanied by his father LaVar Ball.
D’Angelo Russell would likely shift off the ball if the Lakers draft Ball.
“They need a leader,” Ball said when asked why the Lakers should draft him. “They need a point guard. I feel like I can fill that hole.”
