LaVar Ball Says Lonzo Will Leave The Lakers if They Don’t Sign LiAngelo & LaMelo

Melo Ball's 16th Birthday

LaVar Ball stated months before the draft that the Los Angeles Lakers would end up drafting Lonzo Ball, and he was 100% correct on that. He also stated that all of his boys would end up on the Lakers. That one might not happen, as both LiAngelo and LaMelo currently play in Lithuania.

If the Lakers decide not to sign all of his boys, LaVar says Lonzo won’t hesitate to bolt from the Lakers in response.

“If [the Lakers] don’t take Gelo this year, I’ll bring back Gelo here (Vytautas) to play with Melo for two years. Lonzo will be on his third year, and I want to let every NBA team know that Lonzo is not going to re-sign with the Lakers, but will go to any team that will take all of my three boys.”


Over the past year or so, LaVar has made a bunch of claims. Many of them we dismiss, but this is a big one that could further drive a wedge in his relationship with the Lakers.
