Lonzo Ball is considering talking with other teams in the NBA Draft lottery not named the Lakers, according to a report from ESPN citing a source close to him.
Ball and his father, LaVar, have made their intentions of joining the Lakers quite clear throughout the draft process. They’ve remained adamant that the Lakers — his hometown team — is the only place they want him to land. And despite advice to the contrary, they made no effort to speak to or even work out for the Boston Celtics — who hold the No. 1 overall pick — or any other lottery team for that matter.
