Jaren Jackson Jr. joined Shaquille O'Neal and draft prospects Mikal Bridges and Marvin Begley III to host a day of mentorship for teens in Brooklyn with The Y and provide apparel from JCPenney. "It's great, it's really special because that's exactly what I would want if I was in high school," Jackson Jr. said of speaking to the teens. "....

Jackson Jr. has worked out for the Hawks and Suns and is expected to be selected within the top five picks on Thursday.
