Lonzo Ball, playing in the point guard position comes into terms with the Chicago Bulls over a four-year agreement at $85 million. The deal with the Pelicans is a part of the sign-and-trade. This was revealed by the agent of Lonzo Ball, Rich Paul on Monday.
Lonzo Ball is a part of the guard spot which would give him the opportunity to grow with players like Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine while Chicago makes attempts to progress in the process of being competitive within the Eastern Conference.
Since New Orleans diverted their attention onto Zion Williamson, allowing him to run point position as an offense attacker, Ball had the role of being an off-ball winger with the ability to control the attacks in open court, giving the responsibility to Williamson in half. Lonzo Ball, however, would have more chance at offense in his stint with Chicago.
Lonzo Ball In His Career So Far
Lonzo Ball, 23 years of age has had four seasons full of ups and downs since he entered the league picked by the Lakers as the overall No. 2. He had to face some difficulties matching to the lofty standards and expectations over at L.A. although he improved his game once he transferred to the team of New Orleans. Ball had a better stroke of shooting while being with the New Orleans team.
During his time with the Lakers, Ball had a deep shooting of 31.5% and line of 43.7% over both seasons. However, during his time in New Orleans, his shooting improved and he went on to increase the numbers. With the Pelicans, Ball had a shooting for 37.6% from deep and 66.4% from the line.
Ball, however, has had many struggles with injuries all through his career, and that has caused him yet to complete playing a complete season. During his time with the Lakers, he has had to miss 65 games due to injuries in his initial two seasons. With the Pelicans, he has had a total of 26 missed games.
