Lakers not interested in LiAngelo Ball because of LaVar?

LaVar Ball Lakers

LaVar Ball has not backed off of his prediction that all three of his sons will one day be teammates in the NBA, but he may have to find a team that is willing to put up with his antics in order to make that happen.

Ball’s middle son, LiAngelo, went undrafted on Thursday night. The Los Angeles Lakers were among the teams that hosted him for a workout leading up to the draft, but they are not inviting him to join them for the Summer League. ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reports that the decision may have more to do with LaVar than it does with basketball.

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.

The Lakers obviously knew what they were getting into when they drafted a member of the Ball family, but perhaps LaVar has been a bigger headache than they envisioned. While the ridiculous comments he has made lately have been nothing out of the ordinary for him, it probably doesn’t help that Lonzo’s rookie season was a bit of a disappointment.
