Lakers Inform LiAngleo Ball He Won't Be On Summer League Team

The Los Angeles Lakers passed on LiAngelo Ball in last night's NBA Draft, as did every other NBA team, spoiling LaVar Ball's master plan to get LiAngelo on the team with his brother, Lonzo.

Exactly one year ago, Lonzo looked like a cornerstone of the Lakers' future. Despite going through ups and downs in his rookie season, Ball has shown his potential to become a superstar in the league, making him the ideal piece for the Spurs to build around.

LiAngelo Ball's night didn't quite go as planned.

LaVar Ball's "speak it into existence" method has hit a snag.

"What's next for him is to play in the Summer League", Ball told Fred Roggin of AM 570 LA Sports after the draft.

To make matters more interesting, a report from earlier in the week indicated the Lakers could ship Lonzo Ball out of town if they end up landing LeBron James in free agency. If they don't wanna trade him, keep him.

"No, I don't worry too much about what my dad is doing". However, the Lakers' failure to engage in a trade deal with the Spurs doesn't mean that Ball is already safe from being traded.

LiAngelo had worked out leading up to the draft with the Lakers, but wherever LaVar Ball goes, a circus seems to follow, and it appears that isn't something Los Angeles wanted to have following them during the Summer League. He has a strong belief that all of his three sons will be playing in the same National Basketball Association team and eventually win an National Basketball Association championship title together in the future.

"He'll come in the back door as a free agent", LaVar explained.
