LA Expected To Interview De'Aaron Fox At NBA Draft Combine

Magic won't get to interview Markelle Fultz at NBA Draft Combine

The New York Knicks are now projected to have the No. 7 overall pick in the draft (though that can change with the lottery), and they have identified Frank Ntilikina, Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox as their top targets, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. Concerns about Fox are centered around his jump shot as he attempted just 69 threes and shot 24.6 percent from beyond the arc. Even if the Sixers wind up signing a veteran point guard such as Kyle Lowry in free agency, Fultz would be an ideal fit alongside Embiid, Simmons, and Saric.

Fultz is one of the only top prospects attending the combine, with most of the other projected lottery picks choosing to bypass the event. Villanova guard Josh Hart, a second-round prospect, is also participating in the combine.

The NBA Draft is still several weeks but that hasn't stopped the prospects from this year's crop from planning out their schedule with meetings with various teams.

Magic officials wanted to interview Fultz, who played one season at the University of Washington.

One week from now, "Lakers 2.0", as new general manager Rob Pelinka calls it, will be roaring forward with a new level of optimization and the guarantee of enhanced content in the form of a top-three draft pick...or it won't. They will not even break a sweat on the floor.

Do you think the Lakers should go after Lonzo Ball if they keep their pick?

"I watched him last summer at the Jordan Gym in New York City and he made 27 out of 30 National Basketball Association three's", ESPN's Fran Fraschilla said.

Ding reports that Fox and Jackson (who will not attend the combine) may actually be garnering more interest from the Lakers than Ball or Fultz due to their defensive upside. Combined, those skills make him a really hard player to guard on the offensive end.
