The Los Angeles Lakers are doing their due diligence on Lonzo Ball. After a workout that reportedly left the team wondering about his conditioning, the Lakers will reportedly set up one final meeting on Friday in which they’ll track his daily workout routine.

There have been conflicting rumors about how the Lakers see Ball. One report suggested the team was not at all convinced he’s a star player (more on that here). However, not long afterwards, that report was shot down as “just noise.”

Given the fluidity at the top of the draft — the Boston Celtics are reportedly not sold on Markelle Fultz — it’s hard to know exactly what will go down on June 22.

What we know for sure now is that the Lakers will have a very good idea about how Ball trains, which could make a big difference come draft day.
