The Los Angeles Lakers seem to have an affinity for Fil-Am guards.
Sedrick Barefield participated in a pre-draft workout with the Lakers Thursday (Friday, PHL time) as the Fil-Am junior guard out of Utah tests the NBA Draft market.
The connection seemed natural for Barefield as former teammate Kyle Kuzma was drafted late in the first round by the Lakers last year.
A former Fil-Am guard in Jordan Clarkson also made a name for himself first with the Lakers before Los Angeles shipped him to Cleveland at the trade deadline.
While Barefield worked out with the Lakers, he has the option to return to Utah next season, having not hired an agent in order to maintain his collegiate elegibility. He averaged 12 points and 2.5 assists for Utah this past year, all while shooting 35 percent from deep.
