LiAngelo Ball, with his brother Lonzo looking on perhaps for moral support, went through a pre-draft workout for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, alongside other draft prospects.

 

The second of three Ball brothers left UCLA early during his freshman season, after a shoplifting fiasco in China, to play in Lithuania with his younger brother LaMelo. 

I don't really remember too much about (the UCLA fiasco.) I just moved on, went overseas and just learned from over there and then came back and brought my talent back out here.

The 6-foot-5 wing averaged 12.6 points for Vytautas Prienu in the Lithuanian league and showed a shooting touch that carried over in his pre-draft workouts. 

 

Per video of the drills, he showed an ability to maintain the integrity of his shooting form through stress, which should help his case. That said, he doesn't get much lift on his jumper, which also needs to be quicker developing.
