Lonzo Ball is considering working out for the Philadelphia 76ers in advance of the 2017 NBA draft on June 22, league sources told ESPN.
A final decision will be made once Ball’s agent, Harrison Gaines, and Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo have had an extensive conversation centered on the identity of the team.
The implication is that the Sixers aren’t sure if Ball (or any point guard for that matter) would be a good fit alongside Ben Simmons, the ball-dominant former No. 1 pick who sat out the 2016-17 season with a broken foot.
Ball, at this point, isn’t expected to fall past the No. 2 in the draft.
