Los Angeles spent the past few months hinting that they might draft someone besides Ball, which was smart. It looks more and more like the Lakers have settled on Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 overall pick headed into the 2017 NBA draft, according to ESPN’s Chad Ford. Ball and Los Angeles have been linked for months, but we still hadn’t seen any firm decision reported. Now, it looks like the Lakers might be reaching the conclusion of their draft plans.
