Family affair: Lakers grab Lonzo Ball with 2nd overall pick

Family affair: Lakers grab Lonzo Ball with 2nd overall pick”

They also hold the 28th pick. The trade has resulted in the widespread knowledge that the 76ers will be taking guard Markelle Fultz with the number one pick. But Lonzo has a lot to show and prove as a springboard for what the Ball brothers can do.

Ball spoke on ESPN prior to the draft, where he once again asserted that he had spoken into existence his son Lonzo being a Laker, which is exceedingly likely to happen at No. 2 overall.

It's official: Lonzo Ball was selected by his hometown Lakers, and dad LaVar was ready for the announcement.

The selection of Ball will help the Lakers on a few levels. With team president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka making the decision to trade D'Angelo Russell to Brooklyn, with center Brook Lopez moving to LA, there was a clear need for the Lakers to address. Will his outspoken father, LaVar, be able to promote the Big Baller Brand without creating a distraction that could undermine the Lakers?

Ball dazzled with his playmaking during his one season with the Bruins, guiding them to the Sweet 16. The Lakers brought in each of the four in for individual workouts, including Ball.

At UCLA, Ball averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game in 35.1 minutes per game. Now, Johnson believes Ball can do the same thing.
