While Jackson likely has not been promised anything by Los Angeles, if he continues to impress at workouts it will improve his stock to become the second pick in the draft.
It has been reported some members of the Lakers' front office like Jackson, who may be the best two-way player in this draft.
Lonzo didn't play against any prospects during the workout, but instead, played two-on-two with some of the Lakers assistant coaches, according to the Orange County Register. Most NBA mock drafts project the Boston Celtics selecting Washington guard Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick. "He's obviously more of a combo guard that can play both guard spots, similar to the way that Dwyane Wade was when he came out of Marquette". "I think I can contribute to that". The problem? Ball still needed to prove himself to the team at the draft workout this year.

That stung ever since, as Durant understood, because he gave up the same lead to the Warriors a round earlier with Oklahoma City. Led by LeBron James' 41 points, the Cavaliers hung within 108-102 with 8:29 to play on a 3-pointer by Kyle Korver .
It was the first time the Lakers got a close-up look at Fox, but it was the second time they had sat in on a workout for Jackson. But the NBA's structure sets such organizations up with high lottery odds, enabling them to stockpile young, talented players. But I'm just being realistic and thinking about it.
With only 10 days until the draft, it's worth monitoring whether Jackson works out for any more teams. "I'm just wrapping it up right now. College is over. I just put that behind me".
Jackson is a 6-foot-8-inch small forward who averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game for Kansas last season. Ball makes everyone around him better not only because of his passing but the way he spreads the court open.
