PostPosted: Mon Jun 12, 2017 10:24 am    Post subject: OFFICIAL JOSH JACKSON THREAD

John Gambadoro was the first to break the Steve Nash trade and he has a pulse on Phoenix sports. It sounds like according to John the Suns will not get a workout with JJ and were told he has a promise and he speculates it's from the Lakers or Philly.

Quote:
Josh Jackson has been promised - has worked out for Lakers in LA. Has not worked out for Phoenix yet. It could be Philly but likely Lakers.

If this happens we better hope Lonzo doesn't become the next Magic and JJ become the next Kwame Brown.

Would make sense why Lakers keep leaking they aren't enamored with Ball, need to set fans expectations.

Interesting, means Randle could be on way out unless he plays the 5, Ingram at 4 and JJ at 3?

I mean if they're convinced his shooting will continue to improve, I can't blame them too much? Having athletic wings at every position is not a bad strategy.

I will admit I was looking forward to the Ball/Russell offensive pairing though.

this is speculation from a phx beatwriter. all he knows is phx can't get a workout. even says it could be philly. he has no reason to say likely lakers, that's just his own opinion.

I believe it's the Lakers - only reason is that is the only team I know he worked out for. Not ruling out Philly its possible.

He said likely lakers because lakers are the only team jackson has worked out for and he prolly won't work out for anyone else

You could say something similar about any two players at draft time.

Emplay will probably be the first to say rather the Gambo tweet is true or misinformation..

Hopefully he gets ahold of it and tells us.

Guys, I've mentioned it before ... people don't realize how close it has been between Jackson and Ball. Either they have been posturing or the JJ info is legit. If he's shutting down

Sounds like he's just spoon feeding stuff and hoping something clicks.

My professional opinion is that Jackson is a definitely a 1st rounder.

Should I switch to calling Josh Jackson a future superstar and calling Lonzo a bust or should I wait a bit?

From what I can tell, they haven't worked out any lottery prospects, yet. They've only had workouts with second round prospects.

Jackson should be able to play the 2 in the NBA...his shot is inconsistent but he has shown he can score at multiple levels...for me he's like a 2/3 version of BI who is see as a 3/4.....both would need time to develop but that duo could really be a nightmare match up for teams in the future....really interesting to see how this all goes down.....it may all be smoke, but JJ has been in the discussion at 2 on most draft boards even if Ball is usually placed there
