EL SEGUNDO – While Markelle Fultz is widely considered a virtual lock at No. 1 in next week’s NBA Draft, that’s not stopping him from keeping his options open.
After a two-day visit earlier this month with the Boston Celtics – who have the No. 1 pick – Fultz sat down with his family to weigh some options. That discussion led to him visiting Los Angeles on Thursday morning for a workout at the Lakers’ practice facility.
And although the Philadelpia Inquirer reported on June 6 that Fultz would only work out for the Celtics, that was not the message Fultz gave after his workout with the Lakers.
“Me and my family never said that we was just going to work out for one team,” Fultz said. “After the last workout, we sat down, talked about it and then decided to come out here.”
