The Lakers were well-represented on Friday at a BDA Sports workout in Santa Monica. Featuring potential lottery prospects Aaron Gordon (Arizona) and Zach LaVine (UCLA), General Manager Mitch Kupchak and owner-executive Jim Buss were on hand to scout two candidates for the team's seventh overall pick in the June 26 NBA draft. "I love L.A.," said Gordon on the prospect of being drafted by the Lakers. "I have family in L.A." Los Angeles Times
Chris Mannix: Transcribing some NBA combine tape. Zach LaVine told me that in high school he ran a 100-yard dash in 10.9 seconds. That's fast. Twitter @ChrisMannixSI
“Zach LaVine is very raw,” Ainge said. “He didn’t score much down the stretch (for UCLA). I think (Julius) Randle, although he hasn’t shown he can shoot the ball, is still very young and he has some great scoring potential. Marcus Smart scored 18 points a game in the Big 12. He hasn’t shot the ball well, but he has very good scoring potential. (Dante) Exum, I think, has real good potential to be a scorer and a playmaker. Aaron Gordon’s another guy. These guys are all so young.” Exum would appear to be the most intriguing of the “others.” He has the skills and size that is leading teams to believe he could become special, perhaps enough to challenge Parker, Embiid and Wiggins for a place among the top three.
