Josh Jackson has been promised - has worked out for Lakers in LA. Has not worked out for Phoenix yet. It could be Philly but likely Lakers.

The potential "Lonzo is falling" storyline on draft night would be some intriguing drama.

He's a good one. Still think they're drafting Ball. This would surprise re fit.

Lonzo is going to the Lakers. Its not even a question. This means Jackson is going to Philly


The Lakers were near last in many assist categories

I've been saying for a while now, Jackson is a much better fit for the Lakers than Ball. They already have Russell at PG, they have nobody that can give them what Josh Jackson brings. He would work really well with Ingram and Russell imo.

It would be amazing. How far would Lonzo fall if the Lakers don't draft him? I know a lot of people are really high on him but the Balls have been so vocal about wanting to go to the Lakers for so long. That's got to make other teams a little uneasy about drafting him.

Yep. Bet he'll regret not working out for other teams.

Josh Jackson definitely looks like the 2nd best pick in the draft so it wouldn't surprise me at all. All the noise has come from Ball's camp not from LA so it shouldn't be a shock if they pass on him. Means we may well see him in Philly...

Could that mean hilly throw everything at us to trade down? Saric, Lakers 18, Phi 19, Sac 19, Holmes for #1 and filler?

The Lakers never suggested that the obsession of Ball with their team was mutual though. Ball and his dad don't decide where he goes, and the Lakers have no obligation to take him because he's a Lakers fan. They didn't draft Pierce when he was a Lakers fan either. They will do what they think is best for their franchise, and they already have an all-star caliber prospect at PG. They have nobody with length and athleticism that can handle the ball, create shots, and guard multiple positions like Jackson can do though.

Why? Ball is a great fit for Philly. They desperately need a PG.

I've thought for 2 months Ainge wouldn't be able to resist drafting Jackson. Think of it as a "Draft Day" scene (the movie) Ainge has on a note pad Draft Josh Jackson no matter what. He's irresistible to Danny because of his length and defense. Offense doesn't concern the coaching staff or Danny one bit. They don't care that he has no jump shot. He's willing to defend and take 3s. Perfect.

Yeah Ball in Philly seems ideal.

Two brilliant passers in Simmons and Ball, but for a brilliant floor general, the ball really doesnt stick in Balls hands.

Also, provided Embiid stays healthy, Philly would have the rim protection to make up for Balls putrid 1 v. 1 defense.

But does Philly feel strange at all about drafting him after he and his dad have been so vocal about their love of the Lakers?

The Lakers could potentially save a failing nation state by drafting Josh Jackson: they could get every NBA fan to donate $100 to a starving country if they promise not to draft Lonzo. I might pay twice!
