In fact, some executives around the league have been concerned about their ability to get Ball in for a workout between now and the draft in June. With the Lakers keeping their pick, front offices with the potential to land in the top three have been bracing themselves for the possibility that Ball will simply refuse to work out for any team other than the Lakers.

In the background of the video, Brown can be heard writhing in pain.
