New Orleans Pelicans decided to keep Lonzo Ball past the trade deadline as the team is fighting for a place in the postseason.

Ball will remain with the Pelicans at least for the time being, however he’s interested in joining a bigger NBA market, according to Evan Massey.

Massey reports that Ball would like to play for the Chicago Bull or the New York Knicks despite enjoying his time as a member of a very talented New Orleans’ team.

LaVar Ball, Lonzo’s father, claimed earlier this month that the promising guard could not stand New Orleans. Regardless, Ball will be a restricted free agent the coming offseason.

It remains to be seen if he wants out from New Orleans.
