LaVar Ball: If Lakers don't draft LiAngelo, Lonzo will leave in free agency
We nearly got halfway through February before LaVar Ball made an eye-opening comment that put his son Lonzo in a presumably unwelcome spot.
At just 20 years of age, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has become one of the most polarizing figures in the National Basketball Association.
You can say whatever you want, but there's no doubt in my mind that LaVar cares deeply about his sons' futures. "But if that does not happen, I'm telling you the story what's gonna happen first". There's never been a question about his job security here. And this report is sure to make him fire back. For his son. I told him, 'I've been down this road that your son is about to go down, so you got the best person sitting here.
Unfortunately, there's a glaring issue with LaVar's plan, as the Lakers own club options on Lonzo's contract through the 2020-21 season and can then match any deal he signs as a restricted free agent three years from now. I should be back hopefully soon.
On the season, the Lakers are 23-33 and 7.5 games out of the playoff picture.
Ball said he "definitely" expects to be back in the Lakers' first game against Dallas and that if he plays and suffers no setbacks, he expects to play the following night at Sacramento as part of the back-to-back. Once he returns, numberFire's models project him to record 13.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.8 3-pointers per game.
The Lakers rookie (and part-time rapper) just dropped his new mixtape, "Born 2 Ball" - and it ends with a brand new heartfelt song called, "LaVar". a lyrical tribute to his father.
