If the Los Angeles Lakers can pull off a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, LaVar Ball has a preferred destination in mind for his son, Lonzo Ball.
“We want to be in L.A.,” LaVar told ESPN. “But if he’s traded, I don’t want Lonzo in New Orleans. Phoenix is the best fit for him. And I am going to speak it into existence.”
Ball is currently out with an ankle sprain but has been linked in trade rumors as of late. Los Angeles is targeting Anthony Davis and has reportedly offered multiple young players, like Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, and others, in deals to acquire the star center.
Ball is averaging 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 2018-19.
