Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless thinks that New Orleans is a better place for Lonzo Ball’s career than Los Angeles:
“This could be the greatest thing that ever happened to Lonzo Ball. He got out from under his father. … He gets to start fresh with a great up-and-coming franchise. He gets to team up with the perfect alley-oop parter, Zion. They’re made for each other,” Bayless said.
This past season, the 21-year-old averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while shooting at 40.6 percent from the floor and 32.9 from three in 30.3 minutes of action.
