ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Absolutely Destroys LaVar Ball’s Master Plan Of Getting LiAngelo Into NBA Draft This June
Earlier today, LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo from UCLA because he felt the school unfailry punished his son for the whole shoplifting incident in China.
“He wasn’t punished this bad in China “We get back over here and the consequences were even stiffer than China. So basically they’re in jail here.”
LaVar’s master plan is appartently to get LiAngelo ready for the NBA draft in June.
LaVar Ball: “He’s not transferring to another school,” he told ESPN. “The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the NBA Draft.” The plan was always for LiAngelo to spend one season at UCLA and then leave, regardless of whether he was projected to be drafted.
ESPN’s lead NBA analyst Adrian Wojnarowski shot down any chance of LiAngelo getting picked up in this June’s NBA draft.

Ex-UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ball has no chance that he’ll be drafted in June — and that was true before his shoplifting incident in China. “He’s not on any of our scouting lists — even the extended lists,” one GM told ESPN.
Ball will struggle to find a serious job playing pro basketball, including the G-League. @Mike_Schmitz projected him in high school as a small-ball stretch 4-man at the mid-major college level. Would make sense for Ball to find a scholarship at a lower level and stay in school.
I’m not sure what fantasy world LaVar lives but if he wants his son so succeed in basketball he should just have him go to a smaller school and develop his game.
