Lonzo Ball is making major changes in his life after getting swindled for $1.5 million by former Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster.
lthough the announcement comes two weeks after Ball severed ties with and sued former Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster for damages of at least $2 million, Ball insisted Gaines supported him through that situation and that this decision was unrelated.
“Harrison has always had my back and although we will no longer be working together after mutually deciding to part ways; our relationship will always be bigger than basketball,” Ball said in the statement.
Many felt that Lonzo was “becoming his own man” and taking charge of his life after parting ways with Gaines.

The plan was for the Los Angeles Lakers’ second-year guard to become his own man, but LaVar Ball has re-emerged as the shot-caller in orchestrating his son’s next pivotal move, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
LaVar Ball has since met with a few NBA agents on his son’s behalf and CAA is viewed as the favorite to gain control of the point guard’s career, sources said.
But there are concerns from respective agents with LaVar’s involvement and where the family stands financially with the failed Big Baller Brand, sources said.
In the process of vetting agent candidates during meetings, LaVar is inquiring if the agencies have the power to pair his three sons — Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo — on the same NBA team, sources said.
Apparently old habits die hard for Lonzo and LaVar.
