Though far away in Lithuania, LaVar Ball’s plan for Big Baller Brand world domination has already started going through the gears. The loud-mouthed father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball said his son would not be willing to re-sign with the team unless the Lakers were willing to take his two brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, to play alongside him. “I want all my three boys to play for the Lakers. But if that does not happen. I’m telling you the story what’s gonna happen first,” said Ball, according to Lithuanian reporter Donatas Urbonas. “If they don’t take Gelo this year, I bring back Gelo here (Prienai) to play with Melo for two years. Lonzo will be on his third year and I want let every NBA team know that Lonzo is not going to resign with the Lakers but will go to any teams that will take all of my three boys. That’s my plan.” The Ballfather is under the impression that his son, Lonzo, will have a say after his third season. However, he is in fact would be a restricted free agent with a team-option in 2019-20 for $8.7 million and another in 2020-21 for $11 million — making him a four-year conditional holdout.
