Lonzo Ball and his agent may decide to work out for the Philadelphia 76ers who hold the 3rd overall pick in the draft.
Ball has already rejected a workout with the Celtics and made it very clear he wants to play for his hometown Lakers. As a measure of precaution however, league sources now say Ball is considering working out for the Philadelphia 76ers but the final decision will be made by his agent, Harrison Gaines. The 76ers have expressed their desire to have Ben Simmons the point guard of the future so it is unclear how a Simmons-Ball pairing would work. D’Angelo Russell sure wouldn’t mind the Lakers passing on Ball as he liked a tweet on Tuesday that said, ‘…no way in hell [the Lakers] should take Lonzo’
