    Top-three team promised pick to Josh Jackson

    The Ringer had an article speculating after John Gambadoro, a host on Arizona Sports 98.7, tweeted that a top-three team promised to pick Josh Jackson:
    John Gambadoro reported Monday that Jackson had received a promise from a team in the top three  the Celtics (probably not), the Lakers (insert emoji eyes here), or the Sixers (interesting). The news was compounded by immediate reports that Jackson canceled his workout with the Celtics, while just Tuesday, he opted in for a second workout with the Lakers because, he said, Of course, Im not gonna tell them no.
    - Paolo Uggetti, The Ringer

    If he received a promise, it's likely the Lakers. Would you turn down a workout with the Celtics at #1 for a promise from the Sixers at #3?

    Gonna be interesting on draft day to watch Lavar squirm as Lonzo Ball drops.

    I hope Ball drops to Sacramento.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    This guy has been right about a few things apparently he half broke the nash to la trade.

    Buut i doubt very seriously the lakers made a promise to anyone yet.

    They still are bringing ball in for a 2nd workout out Friday so...

    For them it does appear to be down to ball or JJ though. No 2nd workout for fox

    Josh Jackson is the modern NBA player. He's a long wing defender that can score. Right now pgs are a dime a dozen.

    he is like a less athletic Wiggins with a motor. Works for me.

    Buddy Hield's playing combo for them and doing pretty well​. Why Sacramento?

    because it's a **** show of dysfunction, and Ball annoys me to no end (well, his Dad). Let him go to purgatory.

    Lol. I want Ball to do well. He's not responsible for his dad. I just want him to do well in Milwaukee. Or Orlando. Somwhere as far from LA as possible.

    The defense would suck, but that would be a pretty sweet young back court offensively. I'm waiting for the front office to screw it up, but Sacramento would have a bright young talent at every position except small forward.
    As it stands though, I don't see Ball falling past No. 3. He fits too well in Philadelphia, which doesn't need any of what Sacramento would be selling.

    If there is a promise, it's gotta be the Lakers. Only thing that makes sense. I'd still do workouts too, you never know who might trade up or give you a chance to trade back.
