This year’s NBA Draft boasts a number of very intriguing prospects. With the Lakers armed with a lottery pick, the pressure is on for the team to pick the right player who can be a contributor for years to come.

The team is in the midst of their second round of workouts, inviting back players like Marcus Smart and Aaron Gordon for a second time today. They will have another private workout tomorrow, this time with UCLA guard Zach LaVine, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

LaVine’s stock has been rising and falling throughout the entire draft process. He is one of the most athletic players in the draft, and is a great shooter who can play both guard positions. However, he is very raw and still has a lot to learn, especially when it comes to playing the point guard position.

The fact that the Lakers are bringing him in for a second private workout shows that the team is very interested in what he could bring to the table.

Picking LaVine with the seventh pick may be a little bit of a reach, but if the Lakers were to make a trade and possibly move down a few spots in the draft, LaVine could be an excellent choice.
