Adam Silver: LaVar Ball will 'settle down' after Lonzo is drafted

Ball's Dad decreed long ago and repeated not too long ago, that his son was born to play for the Lakers and other teams would be foolish to draft him.

Lonzo, whose younger brothers LaMelo and LiAngelo are the future subjects of LaVar's very public PR campaign, is reportedly set to work out with the Lakers - LaVar's one and only choice for his son - in early June.

The Lakers will get a private workout from Lonzo Ball.

And how's this for a Laker rumor: a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that Lonzo Ball will be working out for the Los Angeles Lakers on June 7. All that really matters is how Lonzo performs on the court once he is drafted. As of this writing, the Celtics are expected to draft Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 overall pick.

Alford also talked about his former point guard and what a phenomenal player he was. He averaged 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game as a freshman with the Jayhawks.

A British official said that Manchester police will stop sharing bombing investigation information with USA amid fury over leaks. United Kingdom police have identified 22-year-old Salman Abedi as the individual they suspect of having perpetrated the attack.

"The Lakers are probably going to be in a position to get him", he said.

Clarkson, who turns 25 on Wednesday, signed a four-year contract last July and is owed $37.5 million through the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

With only so much room on the bench, it appears that Clarkson could end up being the odd man out.

According to Sham Charania of the Vertical, however, Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson doesn't need to worry about that type of stuff happening in Los Angeles because of the level of reverence with which the Ball family holds the "Showtime" legend. Incredibly LaVar, instead of going back to try and negotiate a deal that could be double the $10 million tag, has gone back asking for an even bigger number than he wanted before - $3 billion.
