He also said that if the Lakers won't sign LiAngelo this year-a move that is highly unlikely as he is not considered an NBA-caliber prospect at this time-he'll bring him back to play two more years in Lithuania until LaMelo is National Basketball Association eligible.
Still, this isn't the first time Ball has spoken about his hopes to have all three sons play for the Lakers.
Colin Cowherd: "I think it was the first time, this morning, when Magic wakes up and looks at that and thinks 'we have to at least sit down and have discussions about moving on'".
"If [the Lakers] don't take Gelo this year, I'll bring back Gelo here (Vytautas) to play with Melo for two years". For just $10 more, you can get your signed memorabilia authenticated by Beckett Witness Certification.
Sure, Lonzo could threaten to sit out the season and submarine his career in an attempt to force a trade and play with his two brothers, neither of whom may be National Basketball Association prospects, but that seems unwise.
"Lonzo plays best when he is with his brother - why wouldn't he, he's a hell of a shooter". Like his brothers before him, he was set to go to UCLA. He is now benched due to a knee injury.

Well, LaVar gets points for creativity on this one.
Walton said Ball could participate in a larger workload Tuesday if his sore knee responds to Monday's increased participation.
LaVar's fantasy crusade to get his kids playing together as if it was a local recreational league could come down on him sooner rather than later, as the Lakers organization has been reportedly wearing exhausted of his comments ever since he crossed the line, taking shots at Luke Walton and the coaching staff.
