Ball will not work out for the Boston Celtics, who won the first overall pick at the draft lottery.
As a draft prospect, Lonzo seems to be the flawless fit for the Lakers' current roster.
The 24-year-old had a productive season as the Lakers' backup, averaging 14.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. As such, a backcourt pairing of Ball and Russell will create many offensive opportunities for the Lakers.
Although at times it seems the LaVar Ball media tour might last forever (remember, he has two more UCLA-bound sons), it may be nearing an end soon, depending on which team drafts Lonzo Ball. On top if his many other outlandish pronouncements, LaVar said that Lonzo can help the Lakers immediately.
The Sixers decided in February that they weren't going to deal with Nerlens Noel's restricted free agency, so they shipped him to Dallas at the National Basketball Association trade deadline. Neither are expected to get a workout out of Ball, but both may get a chance for a face to face meeting.
Los Angeles general manager Rob Pelinka said at the National Basketball Association draft lottery that the Lakers are considering "four, five guys that are well-suited to be (drafted)". After FS1 co-host Kristine Leahy asked why Big Baller Brand - and its $495 sneakers - haven't been marketed to women, LaVar ordered Leahy to "stay in your lane" while refusing to look at her. "In Africa, speak that (expletive) into existence".
LaVar Ball has become a controversial figure with his boisterous attitude and controversial comments, and many have expressed their annoyances with him down toward his kids, including 2017 NBA Draft prospect Lonzo Ball. An NBA hopeful in his own right, Alford was one of the Bruins' "three white guys" LaVar Ball blamed for the early exit from the NCAA tournament suffered by his son, although the outspoken father subsequently said those remarks were misinterpreted. The Sixers clearly decided at some point that they weren't comfortable paying Noel the max, but hey, I figured we would keep tabs on the original Process Sixer just as he's about to get paid. "She's bragged on her daughters, and I think it's the same here", Magic said. He makes people around him better. But Alford noted that Lonzo Ball, who exhibits a quieter demeanor than his father, "does get a persona that's totally not him".
