De'Aaron Fox gets his moment to shine for Lakers in pre-draft workout

This was De’Aaron Fox’s moment to shine, his time to showcase his skills to the Lakers during Tuesday’s pre-draft workout, his time to give the team a reason to use its No. 2 pick in the NBA draft on the Kentucky point guard.

Fox knows the competition at his position is Washington point guard Markelle Fultz and UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, who are expected to go first and second, respectively, in the June 22 draft.

Fox was asked after his solo workout if he was motivated by that.

“Umm, I mean, yeah,” Fox responded. “You can say that about anybody. But, right now I’m just worried about myself. I’m not really worried about those guys.”
