On Thursday, the Los Angeles Lakers worked out Markelle Fultz at the team’s practice facility in El Segundo. The workout was considered to be a courtesy with both sides being on the safe side, but it may have turned out to be much more than that. According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, Magic Johnson is all about Fultz and may want to make a substantial trade to land the Washington Huskies product. Rumors have been swirling for weeks about the Lakers and their intentions with the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft. Most believed it was a foregone conclusion that the team would simply draft Lonzo Ball out of UCLA, but now speculation has run rampant about all sorts of scenarios.
