Adam Silver believes LaVar Ball will 'settle down' once son is drafted

Ball is expected to come into the Lakers' facility in El Segundo on June 7, though the team has not yet announced the workout officially or reveal any details about whether Ball will meet with media following the closed door session. It's also going to be an individual workout, according to the source.

The Boston Celtics own the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but the general consensus is that the Celtics will be taking Markelle Fultz if they keep the pick.

As a draft prospect, Lonzo seems to be the flawless fit for the Lakers' current roster. When the Lakers were given the second selection on the night of the draft lottery, most assumed that meant Ball was destined to wear the purple and gold.

The 24-year-old had a productive season as the Lakers' backup, averaging 14.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Adam Silver isn't afraid of LaVar Ball trying to run the show. On top if his many other outlandish pronouncements, LaVar said that Lonzo can help the Lakers immediately. For the Lakers, Magic's presence could go a long way. "So they have a big decision to make". "In Africa, speak that (expletive) into existence".

More than a few people who know a lot about the National Basketball Association have suggested that LaVar Ball's big talk means that his son, Lonzo, will enter the pros with a target on his back.

Nike, Adidas and Under Armour reportedly offered Ball a $10 million dollar shoe deal, but the offer was declined by LaVar in hopes of a more lucrative contract.

However, it appears that they may not be as high on Ball as we all think. Again, I think ultimately the issue is how much game does Lonzo have, how great an National Basketball Association player can he be. "So we're not looking at LaVar being a problem if we're blessed to have the opportunity to draft Lonzo". All that really matters is how Lonzo performs on the court once he is drafted.
