Lonzo Ball has been making some big changes lately to possibly distancing himself from the Big Baller Brand, but that does not mean his relationship with his father has changed.
Ball announced on Thursday that he and his agent have agreed to mutually part ways so Lonzo could look for new representation. Some took that to mean the 21-year-old is taking full control of his own career, but Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports that LaVar Ball is still very much involved and is “the shot-caller in orchestrating his son’s next pivotal move.”
Sources told Haynes that LaVar met with NBA agents and some have reached out to Lonzo and become uninterested when they learned LaVar is still running the show. The biggest problem the agents are having is that LaVar has reportedly been asking them if they have the power to help push Lonzo and his two brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, to the same NBA team.
As of right now, LaMelo Ball could still have an NBA future, LiAngelo went undrafted last year and since then, has not drawn any interest whatsoever. The thought of the three Ball brothers playing on the same NBA team seems like such a long shot as of right now.
