Friday future lottery pick Jaylen Brown had the opportunity to work out for the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. Many have speculated that the Philadelphia 76ers will select Ben Simmons from LSU with the first pick in the NBA Draft, followed by the Lakers choosing Duke's Brandon Ingram with the second pick. Brown's name is a popular one to fall to the Suns in the four spot. Friday's workout of course sparked chatter to the contrary.

After his workout, Brown addressed the media.

When talking to the media, Brown indicated that Friday's workout with the Lakers would be his last. He called criticism of his inconsistent play "fair," and stated that he is getting a clearer picture of which team may draft him on June 23rd.

Friday's workout helped fuel speculation that the Lakers have not settled on selecting Ingram with the second pick. Brown or Washington Huskies power forward Marquese Chriss could find themselves in a Lakers uniform.

Could the Lakers be looking to trade back, or is this all a smoke screen?
