LaVar Ball wants Lonzo in Phoenix if traded

LaVar Ball Lakers

LaVar Ball is back just in time for the NBA trade deadline.

The Ball family patriarch told ESPN on Monday that if Lonzo Ball is traded in a potential Anthony Davis deal, he wants the point guard to end up in Phoenix, not New Orleans.

As usual, we don’t know if LaVar Ball is speaking only for himself or on behalf of his son, though we have heard talk that Lonzo would prefer to play for the Suns. What is true is that LaVar can speak all he wants, but he only has so much influence over this process. He could raise a fuss if the trade isn’t to his liking, but the Lakers are in control of the process here. Between his contract situation and his stature, he doesn’t have a lot of leverage to make demands of either the Pelicans or the Lakers.
