Lonzo Ball may be the favorite to land with the Los Angeles Lakers at the No. 2 overall spot in the upcoming NBA Draft, but the team continues to take closer looks at the other top young players in the country. Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.com reported over the weekend that the Lakers hosted Dennis Smith Jr. for a workout and were “very impressed” with the former N.C. State point guard. The Lakers have also worked out former Kentucky guard De’Aaron Fox and are still hoping to score a meeting with Washington’s Markelle Fultz, who is expected to go first overall to the Boston Celtics and said he is only working out for them. “They have some decisions to make,” a source told Zagoria. Smith, who averaged 18.1 points, 6.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds last season, spoke highly of getting a chance to meet Magic Johnson.
