Lakers opt for questionnaires instead of interviews

Lakers opt for questionnaires instead of interviews

David Mayo of Michigan Live wrote:Clock Game without clock: Jackie Carmichael, a power forward from Illinois State projected to go in the middle of the second round, said the strangest thing any team asked him to do was something akin to the Clock Game on "The Price is Right." The team, which Carmichael declined to identify, picked a number between one and 1,000 and told him he had to guess it, with the team saying "higher" or "lower" after each guess. Instead of a time restriction, Carmichael said he had to predict how many guesses it would require. He said he guessed it would require 50 attempts but it only took him 23.

That's not the weirdest one, though: The Los Angeles Lakers aren't conducting interviews. They're just having potential prospects fill out questionnaires. They have only one draft pick, No. 48 overall in the second round.

Is this one of Jimbo's brilliant ideas in action?
