Jeremy Lin apparently is working out at a training camp in Dallas this week.

As Lakeshowlife noted, the Grind House Training Instagram account posted several videos of Lin working out about a month before the team’s official camp begins.

He was also working out at the Mo Williams Academy.

The videos come as the Lakers reportedly are looking at Eric Bledsoe, the guard currently in contract turmoil with the Phoenix Suns.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, Los Angeles is looking at Bledsoe and Goran Dragic, who also plays for Phoenix

He writes: “The Lakers, for example, are just one team league sources say would likely make a hard run at both of them, based on the premise that the Suns couldn’t afford the cost of paying both at that point, theoretically making either Bledsoe or Dragic gettable. Sources say that Houston, furthermore, has Dragic on its list of potential targets next summer given how he’s blossomed since leaving the Rockets for Phoenix in the free-agent summer of 2012.”

“If Bledsoe signs the qualifier, furthermore, you can pretty much bank on him leaving Phoenix as soon as he gets the chance, because players don’t take that sort of gamble and then bury the bad feelings months later to re-sign with the incumbent team,” he added.

This week, Kobe Bryant reportedly worked out with former NBA star Tracy McGrady, who announced his retirement last year. “Yes, I was working out with K.B. to get in shape and see how my body feels,” McGrady told Yahoo Sports.

Sources told Yahoo that McGrady worked out for three days a week with Bryant several times in August.

“The comeback will not happen, unless I have the drive whenever I get back,” McGrady also said.

There’s been no talk of McGrady going to the Lakers at all. He last played for the Spurs in 2013 when he finally made an appearance in the NBA Finals.
