On Tuesday morning, a week after they held a highly-anticipated workout for UCLA's Lonzo Ball, they did the same thing for Kentucky's star point guard this past college season De' Aaron Fox. Fox's father was also allowed at the workout. Lavar Ball was however prevented from attending Lonzo's last Tuesday but was invited to dinner. This week was Fox's chance to show the Lakers that he is their best choice to pick at No. 2. The workout was held at the Lakers practice facility.

Fox will also workout for the Philadelphia 76ers as well this coming weekend.

A source says the workout will be held on Saturday. The Sixers are looking for a guard that can play at a high-level, and Fox certainly can do so.

While playing his one-and-done season at the University of Kentucky, Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 steals a game. One of Fox's highlight moments during college was when his Kentucky Wildcats eliminated Lonzo Ball's UCLA Bruins in the sweet sixteen of the NCAA tournament this past spring. In that game, Fox put up 39 points. On the defensive end, Fox was able to hold Ball the opposing PG to just 10 points.

Possible destinations

If De'Aaron Fox isn't drafted by either of the teams that hold the top three picks, there are still many teams that desperately need a player of his caliber. The Sacramento Kings, who currently hold the No. 5 pick in the draft, could be a great place for Fox to immediately have a chance at running a team. This past season they traded for the SG Buddy Hield from the New Orleans Pelicans, who was the No. 6 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, for C Demarcus Cousins.

Fox and Hield in the backcourt may be the key to the Kings bringing back life to a franchise who has suffered years of losing.

The team must have a lot of confidence in Hield by giving up such a valued piece in Cousins. With Fox's explosiveness and youth, Hield should have a chance to shine and build tremendous chemistry with the guard from Kentucky.
