If L.A. does not jump at Ball, they are likely to go after Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, Kansas forward Josh Jackson or Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox. Fultz is expected to go in the top three while Fox could as well.

Fultz is projected to be the first overall selection in several mock drafts and was set to interview with the Sixers on Wednesday night. Neither guard, however, will be participating in the Combine's 5-on-5 games.

The draft lottery is Tuesday in Manhattan.

Rawle Alkins will play on a Team 1 that has former UA player Bret Brielmaier as head coach, while Kobi Simmons will be on a Team 3 that has Matt Brase is an assistant coach. In large part, this is the first opportunity for the teams to interact with the individual prospects personally.

Washington and Ankara disagree on the forces that should be utilized against Daesh in the military operation to liberate Raqqa. However, over the last several weeks, Ankara has conducted a unilateral air campaign against Kurdish targets in Syria.

The Celtics already have a ton of guards on their roster, so it's possible they look to trade this lottery pick if a deal for a superstar is available.

The Magic will have an 8.8 percent chance of winning the top overall pick during next week's NBA Draft Lottery and a 9.7 percent probability of receiving the second pick. They will not even break a sweat on the floor.

As I noted yesterday, what happens on the court in the drills and scrimmages is as important as what happens in the 30-minutes interviews the team will conduct with the various prospects. Fox has to improve his perimeter shot, but the mechanics are pretty solid-and the shooting was good enough to outscore Ball, 39-10, with Johnson and Pelinka in attendance, in Kentucky's Sweet 16 elimination of UCLA.

Fultz's fit with Philadelphia might be a bit odd given that the team will have two primary ball-handlers competing for possessions, but Fultz's ability to shoot away from the ball should make that stretch less awkward.
