The Los Angeles Lakers continued meeting with potential prospects at the NBA Draft Combine this weekend with IN forward OG Anunoby the latest on the list.

Kuzma sat out his second scheduled 5-on-5, opting to complete medical evaluations instead.

Among Thursday's other major standouts, Jackson hired an agent on Friday morning - Kevin Bradbury of BDA Sports Management - and in so doing effectively ended his college career following one underwhelming season in a Blue Devils' uniform.

Defensive versatility. Say what you want about Jackson's ability to guard National Basketball Association perimeter players in one-on-one situations, but it's not hard to see his value as a do-it-all defender who plays hard, crowds passing lanes and boxes out. "He's seen the ups and downs, and everything I have to offer". I texted him and reminded him that the road to where you want to be often goes through adversity. But honestly, it was really just the competitiveness coming out of me. Yesterday (Thursday) people saw me be myself.

It's unknown whether or not Jordan Bell will receive an invite to the NBA Draft green room, but if he does attend, you won't see him trying to be too stylish.

The 2017/2018 season is shaping up to be an interesting year.

DraftExpress now projects Mason III to go late in the second round.

"We take everything into consideration", general manager Gar Forman said at the season-ending conference, when asked if the Bulls need to take more fliers on athletic upside. "This is my journey".

"He looked good shooting the ball and he usually does", one source said.

"I think that really showed teams that I embrace who I am, I know my role. This is a decision based on myself".

"I haven't heard anybody say that he won't be in the second round", ESPN's Fran Fraschilla said this week. "Last year was a great experience for me and this year has been even better". Teams are going to bring him in for workouts and he'll get a chance to show what he can do in those workouts. "Markelle Fultz is going there", ESPN's Jeff Goodman added on the call. "I'd put forth a full effort and I'd try to get the job done". How I embraced the process, questions regarding development and all that stuff. I think everybody was there. "I gave them honest answers".

The combine did not go as well for BYU's Eric Mika, which could be good news for Cougars fans hoping he comes back.

Draft Express says Fox is the fifth-best prospect in the draft, but the Lakers have Fox at least inside their top-four, and he has reportedly surpassed Lonzo Ball of UCLA on some draft boards. "He has my back and I'm grateful for his guidance and counsel".

Mason, who tipped off his first game at the combine around 2 p.m. Thursday as a starter for the white squad, wore No. 13 and was on the floor with his KU teammate, Svi Mykhailiuk, who wore No. 53 and started for the gray squad.

Finney-Smith attended the combine a year ago and worked out for teams, but he went undrafted.

Mason, 5-11 in socks, 6-foot in shoes, joined MI senior Derrick Walton (5-11) and Oklahoma State point guard Jawun Evans (5-10.8) in measuring under the 6-foot mark.
