While LaMelo and Lonzo Ball have become excellent NBA players, their brother LiAngelo Ball hasn’t yet made his way onto an NBA team full-time. Bouncing around G League squads and summer league rosters, he’ll have his next shot at making an NBA roster this summer.
As first reported by Rod Boone of Sports Illustrated, LiAngelo Ball is expected to sign with the Hornets and be on their summer league roster.
Still 22 years old, this will be a great opportunity to showcase his skills in effort to earn a spot on the Hornets or another NBA team.
After going undrafted in 2018, Ball signed with the Oklahoma City Blue in the G League just three days prior to the league shutting down in March of 2020. Due to this, he never actually played in a game for the Blue, but did spend time on their practice squad.
Next, he would spend time on an Exhibit 10 deal with the Detroit Pistons in early December before being waived 12 days later. An ankle injury resulted in him never playing in a single contest.
While he’s never been able to make the jump to the NBA, Ball will have one more chance this summer with Charlotte.
