While the Los Angeles Lakers invited more than 100 prospects to their training center for a pre-draft workout, one of the more curious participants was LiAngelo Ball. The younger brother of the Lakers’ point guard wasn’t projected to be taken in the first or second round of the 2018 NBA Draft.
Nonetheless, the organization saw several draft prospects who were likely candidates to be signed for their Summer League or G League rosters. That’s where Ball figured to slot in with the Lakers in a best-case scenario.
But the day after his workout, it was reported the Lakers didn’t have any intention of selecting him in the draft or signing him to their South Bay affiliate.
Now it also appears Ball will not be signed to play in Summer League for the Lakers, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne:

Looks like LaVar's son, Liangelo will not be drafted by any NBA team. And the Lakers are not interested in him for the summer league.
