Lakers G Lonzo Ball hints at leaving Big Baller Brand for Nike deal

Lonzo Ball could be joining the Nike family.

The Lakers guard posted a picture on Saturday with the caption “moving on to bigger and better things.” The post featured Ball wearing a Nike uniform, his No. 2 jersey hanging from the rafters in the STAPLES Center and a Nike slogan.

Ball reportedly cut ties with Big Baller Brand co-owner Alan Foster on Friday after $1.5 million went missing. Foster is suspected to be involved.

The 21-year-old may have been ruled out for the season due to an ankle injury, but could pursue other ventures off the court.

The Lakers were officially eliminated from playoff contention against the Nets on Friday, so he could already be looking ahead to next year.

Ball hasn’t appeared in a game for Los Angeles since Jan. 19. He is averaging 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 2018-19.
