LaVar Ball has opened his mouth once again, this time proclaiming that if his son, Lonzo, is traded before the Feb. 7 trade deadline, that he wants him to play for the Phoenix Suns, not the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.
LaVar Ball tells ESPN that if Lonzo Ball is traded, he wants his son to go to Phoenix: “We want to be in LA. But if he’s traded, I don’t want Lonzo in New Orleans. Phoenix is the best fit for him. And I am going to speak it into existence.”

As we have seen over the past week, the Lakers are aggressively trying to initiate a trade with the Pelicans that would send Anthony Davis to Los Angeles. Many of the packages that have reportedly been discussed involve many players involve Ball, who is in his 2nd season with the Lakers and is a valuable trade asset for the Lakers.
LaVar claims that he will “speak it into existence” in terms of getting Lonzo traded to Phoenix. We will see how that goes.
