"They need a point guard". Smith Jr. could prove he could elevate the Lakers' poorly ranked defense.
As for what he wanted to show the Lakers, Fox made note of his competitiveness, and penchant for hard work. "That's to be against the top get to compete against them". So just as a pure fit, you really wouldn't know who's team it is if he's in Boston.
Smith Jr. proved to be the top dog on talent alone.
This comes just days after reports emerged that while the Lakers were impressed with Lonzo's leadership and offensive game during his first workout last week, many in attendance thought he was out of shape.
The Lakers have dined and worked out Lonzo Ball, traveled to Sacramento to attend a Josh Jackson workout, brought De'Aaron Fox in for a workout Tuesday morning and followed it up with a second workout with Jackson hours later. He sounded mindful, though, of the Lakers' possible interest in upgrading their backcourt. LaVar has not indicated that reports like this one concern him or his son, but it will be worth monitoring as we get closer to the draft. "Every aspect of the game, I just feel like I attack it". "Everything will take care of itself".
Perhaps Jackson's management has advised him against a session with Boston because Washington's Markelle Fultz has emerged as a lock for the No. 1 spot.

Alex Hales and Joe Root made up for the loss of Roy with an 81-run partnership, during which Hales brought up his half-century. New Zealand face Bangladesh in their Group A finale and will need to win and hope England deny Australia victory to progress.
"No, sir", he said. He also believed he could have helped the Lakers in one specific category. "I checked one of the stats and they're bottom 10 in nearly everything relative to pick-and-roll scoring", Smith Jr. said. "I think you have to look at Lonzo Ball as somebody who is going to be an National Basketball Association star and a multi-year National Basketball Association all-star".
"Lonzo Ball is a guy that has the ability to make everybody around him better at a higher level than anybody else in the NBA Draft", Rothstein proclaimed.
You can check out the Ball's entire segment below. The problem? Ball still needed to prove himself to the team at the draft workout this year.
Still, Fox downplayed that point, saying that game shouldn't be a consideration for the Lakers to take him over Ball.
When Kimmel asked if he had any interested in the other L.A. team, the Clippers, Ball answered, "They don't really have a chance, no".
