The Los Angeles Lakers are being careful on choosing the best possible player for the number 2 pick in the 2017 NBA draft.
With only a few days left, according to LA Times, the Lakers are bringing Lonzo Ball for a second workout and Markelle Fultz for his first one. Ball had his first workout last week and the Lakers were very impressed with his passing and scoring, but there is reports Ball was out of shape.
Markelle Fultz, the freshman point guard out of Washington is predicted to be drafted by the Celtics who hold the first pick, but nothing is settled in the NBA. Fultz will be working out with the Lakers on Thursday, per Mike Bresnahan from Sports Spectrum.
Markelle Fultz will work out for the Lakers on Thursday. No official date yet for Lonzo Ball but there will be a second workout.

I believe both prospects are franchise players. Both have the inability to make your team and teammates better. It is going to be interesting to see who the Lakers choose at No. 2.
