Prior to the 2018 draft, LiAngelo had worked out with the Golden State Warriors as well as the Lakers. LaVar Ball's new Junior Basketball Association opened play in Ontario, California, and LaMelo Ball dropped 40 points in his JBA debut.

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.

"What's next for him is to play in the Summer League", Ball told Fred Roggin of AM 570 LA Sports after the draft.

Aside from trade rumors involving Lonzo Ball, LaVar also talked about his other son, LiAngelo Ball, who went undrafted on Thursday night. Ramona Shelburne of ESPN revealed that the Lakers tried contacting the Spurs about a potential deal involving Leonard, but San Antonio "shut the door" for Los Angeles and showed no intention of having a dialogue.

To promote this, Instagram is likely to start a monetising platform for the creators, potentially including ad revenue shares. It will be similar to having one's own YouTube channel, where other IG users can subscribe to follow your content .

"If they wanna trade him, trade him". I would be shocked if a G-League team or two does not make him an offer for next season - for them, the marketing and publicity would be worth the hassle.

In some ways, it will be interesting to see where LiAngelo lands for Summer League, if he even finds a home at all. Hopefully, playing in the NBA's Summer League, however that will require an invite from at least one team.

LaVar Ball's "speak it into existence" method has hit a snag. "Somebody will take all 3 of my boys and whoever do, guess what - championship".
