LaVar Ball Reportedly Turned Down $10M Sneaker Deals For Lonzo


Though many expect Lakers coach Luke Walton to experiment with a backcourt duo of Ball and Russell, there's growing speculation that president Magic Johnson would be willing to move Russell for a player of George's stature.

With Lonzo expected to be selected second overall at next month's NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers, LaVar might have a chance to redeem himself. "I think here, all I know is if I were an National Basketball Association team looking at Lonzo Ball, I'm not sure how much consideration I'd give to his father". The Lakers are reportedly enamored with the Chino Hills product, and Lonzo's father, LaVar Ball, said that his son would only play for the Lakers.

The LaVar Ball mass-media aggregation tour continues on, but Silver is probably right. It's become so real that Ball's camp, which started the process saying he'd only meet with the Lakers, have expressed a willingness to meet with the Philadelphia 76ers and possibly the Sacramento Kings depending on how things go with the Lakers.

LaVar is confident, however, that his son will be holding a Laker jersey come June 22. That money is still Nike, adidas and Under Armour's. To emphasize his point, he compared LaVar Ball to Kardashians momager, Kris Jenner, as reported by CBS Sports. "After the Lakers thing goes down and the flawless scenario is going to unfold, the new deal, Nike (to) five years and $20 million". So, I don't want to say anything that way, but he does get a persona that's just totally not him.
