Smith Jr. could show how he can run the pick-and-roll. "Of course I'm not going to tell them no", Jackson said. Both teams pick fourth and fifth respectively. "Kyrie (Irving) was the No. 1 pick and Isaiah Thomas was the last pick". This is business time for Dennis Smith Jr.
The spot will air nationally on ESPN during the live broadcast of the 2017 NBA Draft on June 22 and is part of Foot Locker's "Approved" platform, created by worldwide agency BBDO. But the Lakers brought Smith Jr.in for a workout in case they trade down.

Then, there is his athleticism, which became a problem in his first workout with the Lakers. In addition to the second overall pick, the Lakers have the 28th pick in the first round.
Does this mean Fultz aims to be with the Lakers instead of being in Boston? Lydon overheard the conversation.
Jackson would join Tarik Black and Thomas Robinson as the third player on the Lakers roster who played collegiately for the Kansas Jayhawks. So you see how that worked out. Lydon averaged 13.2 points, while averaging 47.2 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from 3-point range.
