Lakers attempt to add another pick

The Los Angeles Lakers, who have the No. 2 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, reportedly are working to acquire another high first-rounder as they search for players to improve their outside shooting and perimeter defense.

The Lakers have engaged at least two teams in the draft lottery as they continue their rebuilding process, league sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Los Angeles currently holds the second and 28th picks in the first round. The Lakers have been contacted about their No. 2 pick, but it remains unlikely they would trade out of that position, according to the report.

With the No. 2 pick., the Lakers are considering UCLA's Lonzo Ball, Kansas' Josh Jackson and Kentucky's De'Aaron. Ball hosted a second workout for the Lakers on Friday.

Ball's outspoken father, LaVar, who was not invited to Lonzo's first workout at the Lakers' facility in El Segundo on June 7, was present for Friday's workout at an unspecified location in the Los Angeles area near his home.

Magic Johnson, president of basketball operations, and general manager Rob Pelinka were the only representatives of the Lakers to attend Friday's workout, according to ESPN. Coach Luke Walton remained in El Segundo for a draft workout with other players.

Ball, 19, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds over 36 games in his lone season with the Bruins in 2016-17.
