He joined fellow prospects Bryce Alford, Dwayne Bacon, Derrick Walton Jr. Jordan Bell and Kennedy Meeks in the workout in front of Lakers training staff members.

The session was watched by former Los Angeles Lakers Forward Lamar Odom who won two NBA Championships with the team and was named 2011 Sixth Man of the Year.
