*LaVar Ball, who is in Lithuania with his two sons, told a local reporter that his master plan is for all three of his sons to play on the same NBA team in 2020-21.
“I want to let every NBA team know that Lonzo is not going to re-sign with the Lakers, but will go to any team that will take all three of my boys. That’s my plan.”
Ball didn’t seem to understand that Lonzo will still be under contract with the Lakers when LaMelo Ball will be eligible to sign with an NBA team.
This latest headline-making controversy has national NBA commentators suggesting that Lonzo’s days in Los Angeles could be numbered.

Stephen A. Smith: “I’m going to bring up a point that needs to be made. If I’m the Los Angeles Lakers, I’m thinking about moving Lonzo Ball.
Not this season, of course, but if this young man don’t learn to step up and handle his business and do whatever he can to distance himself from his daddy’s comments publicly, I’m going to have to sit up there and think about getting him the hell up out of Los Angeles, California. This is ridiculous.”
Jason Whitlock: “LaVar Ball is a hot mess, and he may create such a mess that it’s hard to recruit free agents here, and the Lakers may have to consider moving on.”
Colin Cowherd: “I think it was the first time, this morning, when Magic wakes up and looks at that and thinks ‘we have to at least sit down and have discussions about moving on.’”
Chris Broussard: “Now Magic, I think for the first time since they drafted him, really has the leverage to go to LaVar and say ‘look, if you make one more comment about the Lakers, we are trading Lonzo. Period.’ And if he does it? You ship him out.”
LaVar has convinced himself that his three sons will deliver the Lakers’ next championship.
