A couple weeks ago, the Los Angeles Lakers brought in 12 draft prospects for workouts. Although none of the big-name players like Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins or Joel Embiid worked out for the team, quite a few promising prospects showed up and put their skills on display in hopes the Lakers take a chance on them with the seventh pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA draft.
One of those draft prospects was UCLA’s Zach LaVine. It remains uncertain where LaVine will go in the draft or even if he will be a lottery pick at this point, but he may have improved his draft stock after blowing people away at the Lakers workout with a 46-inch vertical.
LaVine continues to show his athleticism and ability to jump out the gym with this Vine that was posted by Jordan White on Saturday. LaVine is seen pulling off a behind-the-back jam with relative ease.
According to the latest mock draft by MyNBADraft.com, LaVine will go to the Boston Celtics at No. 17 and Oklahoma State product Marcus Smart will land with the Lakers at No. 7.
Obviously, anything can happen come draft day on June 26, but it is expected to see LaVine not drafted with a lottery pick.
