The running assumption for the NBA Draft right now is that the Celtics will select Markelle Fultz with the top pick, and the Lakers will follow with Lonzo Ball at two. But that may not end up being the case.

While Ball has made his preference to play in Los Angeles very clear, the Lakers may not reciprocate. They are still interested in him as a prospect, but there's no guarantee he goes second overall. According to Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding, Ball "didn’t blow the Lakers away or seal any deal in the time he spent with their officials Tuesday and Wednesday."

Ding also reported that the Lakers are interested in other prospects such as Fultz (if he doesn't go first), Josh Jackson and De'Aaron Fox.
