Lonzo Ball makes case for LeBron James to join him on Lakers

Lonzo Ball makes case for LeBron James to join him on Lakers

With his son Lonzo on the brink of being a projected top three Draft selection tonight, his outspoken dad had one more boast to make and he did so while walking down the street in New York City.

When it comes to the top of the draft, these days much of the speculation revolves around the Phoenix Suns.

The Lakers are taking a gamble of sorts by offering substantial value in return for George, which Stein reports as the 27th and 28th picks, in addition to Randle. By trading away the No. 1pick, the Celtics would pass on Fultz who is expected to be a future superstar but a possibility of landing Josh Jackson a swingman from Kansas at No. 3 is quite appealing for the Celtics who need help at the wing position more than they do in the backcourt. The 6-foot-6, 190-pound Ball averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game while leading UCLA to a 31-5 record this season. "Anytime you want the ball, just let me know and it's going to be there".

If neither player is available it will come down to Tatum, Fox and Jonathan Isaac.

National Basketball Association insider Sam Amico reported Wednesday night that the Indiana Pacers were sifting through and ranking trade offers for George, with just about every team (if not all) at least contacting them about the four-time All-Star. Isaac has the most upside, but the Suns drafted two players past year with long developmental timelines and aren't sure they're ready to do that with Isaac as well.
