LiAngelo Ball To Join Hornets Summer League Team

LaVar Ball is easily one of the best promoters in the history of basketball, and it’s not even close. When Lonzo was in college, LaVar was making some wild claims about his oldest son’s talent and how he would be the next Magic Johnson. When it comes to LiAngelo and LaMelo, LaVar brought that same energy to the table, although in the case of LiAngelo, it never really manifested into anything. It was believed that LiAngelo would be drafted by the Lakers although it never came. From there, LiAngelo had a small stint with the Detroit Pistons, but that never manifested in anything either.

Since that time, LiAngelo has been looking for a new NBA home, preferably alongside one of his brothers. With Lonzo headed to free agency and LaMelo balling out on the Hornets, it was only a matter of time before a team would take a waiver on the middle brother.
