LaVar Ball Reveals Next Step For LiAngelo Ball After Son Goes Undrafted

Maybe it was when he left the UCLA basketball team after being arrested in China for shoplifting. Maybe it was when he shot 24.3 percent from three-point range in Lithuania and left the team earlier than expected.

The Lakers selected Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

To that end, LaVar Ball was prompted about his son going undrafted and, in short, he gave a remarkably tame response, at least by his own lofty standards.

But LaVar still thinks LiAngelo will make it in the league.

Lakers officially informed LiAngelo Ball he will not be on their Summer League team last night.

LaVar Ball has not backed off of his prediction that all three of his sons will one day be teammates in the National Basketball Association, but he may have to find a team that is willing to put up with his antics in order to make that happen.

Throughout the process, the Lakers told Ball this would be "a merit-based system", as one source put it, and that Ball's workout with the team could have earned him a spot if he had impressed. In other words- the LaVar effect was real.

As the 2018 offseason goes deeper, rumors and speculations continue to swirl that the Los Angeles Lakers are expressing strong interest in trading for Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs. Maybe things will work out for the Ball family after all.

Nonetheless, the organization saw several draft prospects who were likely candidates to be signed for their Summer League or G League rosters.
