Avert your eyes, Jazz fans. Elijah Bryant was donning the purple and gold today.
After workouts with the Bucks, Jazz and reportedly the Celtics soon, Elijah Bryant had a workout today with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Elijah was one of six players that the Lakers worked out.
Here are the players at pre-draft workouts for the #Lakers today: Jevon Carter – West Virginia— Alex Vejar (@AlexVReporting) May 23, 2018
Elijah Bryant – BYU
Omari Spellman – Villanova
Trey Kell – San Diego State
Gary Trent Jr. – Duke
Kostas Antetokounmpo – Dayton
Bryant isn’t expected to be one of the 60 players selected in this year’s draft, but he could follow a similar path that Kyle Collinsworth took as a undrafted player in the G-Leauge to a contract with the Dallas Mavericks. If that doesn’t work out, making money to hoop in Europe isn’t a bad life either.
Here’s a 30-second clip you can view of Elijah Bryant during a drill. He made 2/4 threes he attempted.

In addition to working out, Bryant got to meet Lakers legend and current President Basketball of Operations Magic Johnson.
I motivate others by making sure that they understand to go after their dreams and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t. If you are motivated enough and put the work in that you can achieve anything in life that you set your mind to. -Magic Johnson#chasingdreams #lakers #ebandj pic.twitter.com/ecZKGllNgw— EB (@Elijah_Bryant3) May 23, 2018
The Lakers have two first round picks (10 and 25) and 2 second round picks (40 and 47) in this year’s NBA Draft. The Draft will be held Thursday, June 21.
