LiAngelo Ball is reportedly loved by the Hornets because of his performances in the Summer League held in Las Vegas. Ball has shown impressive strong performances for the team and has proved himself to be worth every dollar.
Jay Triano, the assistant coach, mentioned LiAngelo Ball to be a great kid and him being loved in the squad. According to the coach, the player was on the court every day, practicing for two straight months, only intending to perform in the League. Other than showing a lot of character, it also shows his dedication towards the sport, and love for the team.
LiAngelo Ball aims to be included in a spot on the roster for the G league or the NBA for the season in 2021-2022. With a total score of 16 during his debut, Ball is the sure proof of skilled shooting. Standing at 6’5”, from the three-point range, the guard had a shooting percentage of 41.7%.
This marked the first action to be extended by LiAngelo Ball since being undrafted back in 2018. Although he signed on a contract for Oklahoma City for playing in the G-League back in 2020, March, the pandemic caused the season to be canceled before he got even a minute of playing time on the court.
LiAngelo Ball’s Future In Professional Basketball
With his sensational performances, LiAngelo Ball has made his mark with the Charlotte Hornets. The team is inclined to sign him and position him for playing with his brother LaMelo, the winner of last season’s NBA Rookie of the Year. Lonzo, the older brother to Ball, is in the team of the Chicago Bulls with a contract for four years, standing at a massive $85 million. LiAngello was in a contract for a training camp with the Pistons back in December 2020. However, he was let go a mere 11 days after the signing.
Although the Hornets have a steady guard to be present in the team alongside Terry Rozier, Ish Smith, LaMelo, and James Bouknight, LiAngelo Ball has had enough proof under his belt to be given a chance at having a role in the future of the team.
