Ball to have solo Lakers workout June 7

However, that has come at the cost of placing an enormous amount of pressure on Lonzo Ball to live up to the hype (at least until his two younger brothers, both touted players at the high school level, can take their shots at the pros). "After the Lakers thing goes down and the ideal scenario is going to unfold, the new deal, Nike (to) five years and $20 million".

While I'm more bullish on the potential of a Lonzo Ball-D'Angelo Russell pairing than some, the Tatum-Ingram pairing presents fewer questions.

"I guess the story becomes more intriguing in that if he goes to the Lakers, he could've made much more money, maybe doubled his deal on that alone, and chose to pass".

One more star would make the Celtics a legitimate title contender, and remember: even if things don't work as planned, Boston gets Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick too, which could very well end up No. 1 overall for a second straight season.On Tuesday night inside a NY hotel, the ping-pong balls smiled upon the Lakers once again. That followed comments by Cavaliers forward Channing Frye, who said Ball would be "disgustingly easy to hate on".

According to Charania, Ball will perform an individual workout rather than a group one and will meet with the front office.

Being a video game, seeing Ball on National Basketball Association 2K17 this early could be a sign of things to come. He's out on his own and good for him if that's what he and his kids want to do. "He's a great locker room guy, and he just leads by example, and he gets people to follow".

A brand that appears hell-bent on going to the Los Angeles Lakers at No. 2 overall.

There have been National Basketball Association players, past and current, who have said Lonzo will be a "target" because of his father.

No other players are expected to be involved in Ball's workout, the source said.
