Lakers Bring Smart, Gordon, Payton Back for 2nd Workout. Add Stauskas, Hairston, Hezekiah
The Lakers brought back 3 of the players they had workout for them on June 4th for another round of workouts. Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton and Marcus Smart were those 3 players. They also added Nik Stauskas, P.J. Hairston, and Matthew Hezekiah. Stauskas was supposed to be at the June 4th workout, but a shoulder injury had him resting as he wanted to be 100% when he was able to showcase for the team.
Stauskas is considered to be one of the best shooters in the draft and is one of those guys that many feel wouldn’t be athletic enough at the NBA level. His stats show that he is one of the more athletic players in the draft so this shouldn’t be too much an issue to teams looking to draft him towards the end of the lottery.
