Several NBA Executives Do Not Believe LiAngelo Ball Is ‘Talented Enough’ To Play In The G-League

Earlier this week, Lonzo Ball’s brother, LiAngelo, worked out for the LA Lakers and failed to impress the team according to report from Sam Amick of the USA Today.

Don’t count on LiAngelo Ball following in his brother’s footsteps.

While the Los Angeles Lakers held a workout Tuesday that included the younger brother of starting point guard Lonzo Ball, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports team officials have no interest in drafting or signing the 19-year-old – for the NBA team or even the G-League team, the South Bay Lakers.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because opinions of draft prospects aren’t typically shared publicly.

Apparently LiAngelo’s workout was so bad that several NBA executives around the league do not believe he’s good enough to play in the G-League.

I highly doubt a G-League team would not be interested in signing LiAngelo from a marketing perspective. LiAngelo would bring a ton of eyeballs to the struggling league but maybe teams will not want to have to deal with constant meddling from his father. Gelo is definitely going to play ball next season whether it’s in the G-League or overseas, he’s just too big of a star to be sitting at home dong nothing.
