I'm sure every team near the top asked to work out Fultz. It's only notable because he said yes apparently. It just makes me think he's being conservative and not taking anything for granted.

So you say yes to the team with the 5th pick?

Working out for multiple teams is anything but conservative with regards to fultz.

Maybe that knee problem he had is more serious than previously believed.

i did not realize Lonzo Ball's mom had a stroke a few months back
I confess that I have never seen Markelle Fultz play a basketball game and I was not at his 76ers workout Saturday in Camden

We alluded to the news and subsequent article regarding the situation here, but found it in real poor taste. Last I heard is that her condition is improving but far from great.

Lavar had a big interview with ESPN where he discussed it so I figure it's fine to discuss now

When the news first broke, it was a hit piece on the family. At that time I wasn't down with lavar, and I was still like whoa!

It's a family matter and something he wishes to share, by all means it's ok. Even azrider has some set of principles.

Then we get Fultz from the Kings for Stauskas

Yeah it was some weird thing where people criticized lavar for not being properly mournful or whatever. People suck.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

So Fultz didn't actually work out for the Kings.

I thought the Lavar criticism from that was that he (allegedly) wasn't letting the kids see her because he didn't want them getting distracted from basketball and he pretty much left her alone in a coma.

Did Ball work out for Sackatomato? With the 5 and 10 for 3 talk heating up he may end up a King.

Lakers worked out Fultz. Also reportedly giving and receiving offers to trade down.

Feel like Magic and Pelinka are either very very crafty or are in over their heads.
