Players working out for the Lakers get an experience they might only otherwise get with the Michael Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats or with the Indiana Pacers before Larry Bird stepped down as president last month.
He wasn't considered a lottery pick early in the college season, but he came on in January and now could be taken in the top 10.
"I got a picture", said a beaming Josh Hart, a point guard from Villanova.
There's a quartet of touted one-and-done college players along with an 18-year-old global prospect with size and athleticism. However, he has also never been as accessible as he is now - at least to the world's top young basketball players. It hurt.

CONCERNS: He is considered a longer-range project that some of the American point guards in the draft, in part because of the level of competition he has played against and questions about his offensive game. Do they trade their late first round picks to try and move up or do they do as Fran mentioned and stock up on players who have the potential of being great in the future? Brandon Ingram will likely step into the starting lineup at the small forward spot with Julius Randle and Timofey Mozgov (if not traded this summer) occupying the other forward positions.

Jackson would excel in an up-tempo attack led by Bledsoe with prolific scorer Devin Booker shooting from the outside and Jackson cutting and attacking the rim. Each team could have a radically different draft board, causing chaos with each name read by Adam Silver. Monk doesn't have the dimensions of the prototypical National Basketball Association shooting guard - he's 6-3, 200 pounds - but he can score in a variety of ways.
Smith spent a season at North Carolina State filled with big stats and few wins. Additionally, he is inconsistent on defense and either has an unwillingness or inability, so far, to get to the rim the way most people would expect.

The plan for now is to release the bill on Thursday, have it scored by CBO over the weekend, then hold the big vote next Thursday. McConnell can only lose two Republican senators - any more than that and Senate leaders will fail to repeal Obamacare.
