UCLA's Zach LaVine sets Lakers workout record

UCLA guard Zach LaVine had the stat of the day at the Lakers' draft workouts.

He nailed a 46-inch vertical leap Wednesday morning.

It wasn't quite a traditional vertical (he was tested for that as well) but on the record-setter for a Lakers draft workout, he was allowed to take a few steps before jumping. He broke the 44-inch mark in the moving vertical set last year by former Louisville guard Peyton Siva.

"I've gone higher than that before, but, yeah," LaVine said. "I think I was pumped a little bit. You know, the Lakers."

LaVine, a 6-foot-6 guard, is projected to go in the middle of the first round, perhaps a bit higher, after leaving UCLA...
