LiAngelo Ball thinks there’s some NBA interest in him ahead of the 2018 draft.
“Yeah, of course… I feel like I can play with them,” LiAngelo responded when TMZ asked if he was confident that any NBA teams were interested in his skills. (SLIDESHOW: Baller Babes: These Gorgeous Women Love Basketball)
I don’t know whether or not there are actually NBA teams interested in him or not. The only people who know that answer are his family and the actual scouts.
Personally, I’d be a bit shocked if NBA teams came calling for LiAngelo after one season in Lithuania. Doesn’t seem terribly likely if you ask me.
Did he have a solid season in Lithuania? Yes, but you’re going to need to do a bit more than scrap against some guys in Lithuania to bag an NBA job. What’s more likely in my opinion is that he heads to the G-League for the season after going undrafted, and maybe gets a look in a year or two when he’s more prepared.
