"I wouldn't personally, but somebody in our organization will," Walton said. "Absolutely."

The Lakers had been connected to Ball prior to Tuesday's draft lottery, and speculation has ramped up that he could be the team's point guard of the future after the Purple and Gold learned they would be picking at No. 2 overall.
Since then, LaVar has gone on the record and stated Lonzo will only work out for the Lakers as he attempts to steer his son to Staples Center.
"Oh, he's going to be a Laker," LaVar told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne. "I'm going to keep talking about it until it happens."

In his latest mock draft, B/R's Jonathan Wasserman slotted Ball to the Lakers.
"Ball stands out as the lone prospect capable of helping the Lakers expedite their rebuild more quickly," he wrote. "They'll have to add defenders in free agency, but all signs point to Ball running the show next year in L.A."
