Spectrum SportsNet’s Mike Bresnahan has reported that Josh Jackson will workout for the Lakers this afternoon, marking the second workout the Lakers have held with the prospect.
Earlier today we reported that Jackson had cancelled his workout with the Celtics and that heightened the rumor that the Lakers had promised to select him if he was still available. This news gives even more credibility to the rumors as the Lakers will privately work out Jackson this afternoon and allow media availability after. Jackson’s 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds gave Kansas the star power needed to win the BIG-12. He’s a natural athlete that will have to work on generating more consistency from his jumpshot but will help whichever team selects him in this month’s draft.
