LaVar Ball is back it at.
In an interview with Lithuania reporter Donatas Urbonas, the notorious basketball dad declared Lonzo Ball won't re-sign with the Lakers unless LA also signs his younger brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo, who are currently playing on Vytautas Prienai in the Lithuanian league.
It isn't a very good plan.
For starters, LiAngelo isn't even considered even a longshot NBA prospect. LaVar's understanding NBA free agency is also f. The Lakers hold a rookie scale team option on Lonzo in two years. Furthermore, they would be able to match any other team's fer when Lonzo becomes a restricted free agent in three years.
But the 23-32 Lakers have been 8-4 since Lonzo went down with a knee injury last month. So maybe they wouldn't mind cutting ties with the Ball show early …
Here are all LaVar's comments:
