If Celtics pass on Fultz, will they go Fox-hunting?

No longer NBA champions, Cavaliers are now chasing Warriors

But there is growing speculation they are not sold on UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, and Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox surfaced initially as another option.

One of the more intriguing prospects in this year's draft is Kansas swingman Josh Jackson.

And Lakers reporter Mike Trudell says Fultz will be at the team's facility Thursday after Jackson and Fox worked out for the team Tuesday.

Markelle Fultz recently had a workout with the Celtics that was not overly impressive. ESPN's Jeff Goodman spoke about Fultz's workout with Boston. Will LaVar try and make himself a part of Lonzo's National Basketball Association career?

Jackson, who can play shooting guard and small forward, touted his versatility and ability to defend both positions. "But you're still going to get the most out of me". "It doesn't matter. This is a really good draft class and probably one of the best I've seen in the last couple of years". I'm just about wrapping it up right now.

In addition to Ball, the Lakers are considering De'Aaron Fox and Josh Jackson, and are praying Markelle Fultz somehow falls to them at the second overall pick-which at this point is almost impossible. If Ball is the Lakers' top choice at No. 2 overall, they aren't going to pass on him simply because he looked exhausted after running through drills. Smith is worth a look late in re-draft leagues.

Though Fox did not have the opportunity to fully showcase those skills in an individual workout, he believed he compensated when he played and defended the Lakers' assistant coaches. "I felt like I attacked the workout pretty well today". It's just something that I had to do. Ball makes everyone around him better not only because of his passing but the way he spreads the court open.

Either way, Jackson will be just fine - even if he doesn't get to join a Celtics organization much closer to contending for a title.
