LiAngelo Ball famously went undrafted this year, but he may have been closer to making the NBA than most had thought.
In Sunday’s latest episode of his family’s Facebook show “Ball In The Family,”the middle Ball brother was shown with father LaVar and agent Harrison Gaines in a scene that was filmed before the draft. The scene saw the three men sitting together to discuss LiAngelo’s hopes of being drafted. During the conversation, Gaines said that he had talked to all 30 NBA teams and that, based on the feedback, “the realistic shot” was the Phoenix Suns at No. 59. “Besides that, I think it’s going to be tough,” Gaines added.
A previous episode of the show also revealed that LiAngelo had interviewed with Phoenix. The implication was that the interview went well with the 19-year-old saying, “The Suns one wasn’t really like an interview. I was just talking to them.”
