Twelve NBA Draft prospects worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers hoping that the team would use their 22nd first round pick to draft them. Afterwards, the players shared their impressions of the workout.
“I would say the workout went pretty well. The guys were competing at a very high level,” Virginia guard Trey Murphy III said. “There was a lot of fun out there. Definitely one of my harder workouts I would say, there was a lot of running involved, just testing our shape, testing our mental toughness. It was a really good time to meet the staff and front office. There are a lot of good people in there.”
“Just looking outside the black building it’s just like ‘Wow, you’re at the Lakers facility.’ It’s one of the best organizations in history. But just coming in here first and seeing everything all the banners, all the greats, seeing guys who’ve been in the program for more than 30 years, even 60 years,” Virginia Commonwealth University guard Nah’Shon Hyland said.
“Just being around that energy and just like ‘Wow, I’m in the Lakes facility.’ If I get picked to come here, it’s going to be a dream come true, a blessing just to be around these greats you have something to strive for and strive towards.
