Lakers Inform LiAngelo Ball He Won’t Be Part of Their Summer League

At the end of the 2018 NBA Draft, fans that were remaining in the arena during the second round, screamed to the top of their lungs for a team to select LiAngelo Ball, but it wasn’t meant to be.

The middle Ball son had the worst odds of the Ball brothers to make into the league, but that didn’t stop his father from trying his hardest to do so. It shouldn’t be quite the shock since LaVar once told LiAngelo he probably wouldn’t make it to the league.

“I told my boys that one of them wasn’t going to make it. Because if you’ve got three, only one, maybe two make it to the NBA,” he said. “He’s going to be taken care of either way.”

“All my boys are gonna be one-and-done. Gelo [LiAngelo] is going [to] be one-and-done whether he’s good or bad,” LaVar Ball said. “I’m going to put him in the draft, hope they don’t take him. Bring him into the Lakers as a free agent, let him wind up with his brother and watch how good they play together.”

He added, “I’m going to do the same thing with Melo. And we get three of the Ball boys on the Lakers together, and we gonna go championship, championship, championship, championship, championship. You think I’m playing? You saw what they did in high school.”

The chances of LiAngelo even sniffing a Lakers roster was dead on arrival after they passed on selecting him in the draft and informed him on Friday that they do not plan to have him on their summer league.
