On May 26 and 28, the Lakers will begin holding pre-draft workouts at the team’s practice facility, but it is currently unclear which prospects will participate according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

After landing the second overall pick, general manager Mitch Kupchak stated that he expects to bring in ’50-60 players’ to workout for their late first round and early second round picks.

With the Lakers likely drafting Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor depending on who the Minnesota Timberwolves select first, there are also numerous prospects to consider with the other two picks. Rashad Vaughn, Robert Upshaw, Jarrell Martin, Christian Wood and JP Tokoto highlight prospects the Lakers could potentially workout.
