Could Lonzo Ball be returning home to Southern California?
The Los Angeles Clippers are reportedly looking into the possibility of acquiring point guard Lonzo Ball from the New Orleans Pelicans. According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Clippers are "exploring trade routes" for Ball ahead of the deadline in hopes of getting a playmaker to add to the team.
The 23-year-old Ball is right in in the fourth season of his career and his second as a member of the Pelicans after getting traded from the Los Angeles Lakers part of the Anthony Davis deal two seasons ago.
Lonzo is having the best year of his young career with 14.2 points per game, shooting 42.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from beyond the arc.
