UCLA product Lonzo Ball is scheduled to workout for the Lakers tomorrow but his outspoken father, LaVar Ball, will not be present for it, head coach Luke Walton confirmed on the Jim Rome Show Tuesday. The elder Ball, however, was offered an invitation to a pre-workout dinner — where Walton was not sure he would be. Walton joked that Ball’s presence would be a entertaining boost. “Absolutely. If he wanted to come to the dinner,” Walton said (via USA Today). “I think the workout is something that we’ll keep the doors closed on, but the dinner, I think he would definitely make the dinner more entertaining. He’s definitely welcomed to join us for that one.” Ball, 19, is expected to be a top draft pick this season and the Lakers own the second overall pick. As a solid player at UCLA and California native, Ball is viewed in many circles as a surefire Lakers pick.
