Lonzo Ball: ‘Of Course’ I Want to Play for Lakers


After an individual workout in front of Lakers brass — which included Magic Johnson, the player he patterned his game after — point guard Lonzo Ball reiterated his desire on Wednesday to play for his hometown team.

“Of course,” Ball answered during an eight-minute media session that followed the workout. “It’s home.” Ball also said that if the Lakers pass on him, he would play for any team. “I’ll go to any team and just do what I do,” Ball said. “Play basketball.”
