Sounds Like The Lakers Have No Interest In the Middle Ball Bro

LiAngelo Ball and his Big Baller Brand team might want to start coming up with backup plans, because the goal of playing on the Lakers with Lonzo is reportedly a longshot. The New York Times’ Marc Stein dropped the bad news on Gelo in a tweet Wednesday, stating the Lakers don’t even have interest in him playing on their G-League team after watching his workout:

Poor Gelo. He has his heart set out on tearing up the league with Lonzo. Playing with his big bro is pretty much his life goal, he made that known during an interview with ESPN LA earlier this month (via LakersNation):

Lakers is my priority, for sure. I want to play with my brother. Ever since I played with Zo, we went undefeated. Same thing will happen when we get older. We’re just going to get stronger and faster and better feel for the game.

My priority is the Lakers. I just want to play with my brother.

The good news for Gelo? There are more workouts ahead. He has a showing with the Golden State Warriors coming up in June… perhaps they’ll have a need for a former Lithuanian basketball star on the Santa Cruz Warriors.

LaVar’s nemesis, ESPN reporter Jeff Goodman, verifies Gelo isn’t G-League caliber:
