LiAngelo Ball was a long shot to get drafted, and as many predicted, he did not hear his name called Thursday night.
He also won't join his older brother Lonzo as a part of the Lakers summer league team as he was informed Friday he is not getting an invite to Las Vegas, according to ESPN.
Lakers officially informed LiAngelo Ball he will not be on their Summer League team last night. They were determined to make this a basketball decision but as one source put it, “obviously there’s more to it than basketball.” In other words— the LaVar effect was real.— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) June 22, 2018

Translation: We don't need LaVar Ball around any more than he already is.
LiAngelo could still latch on to a different summer league squad or NBA G League team, but his lackluster skillset and family baggage make that seem unlikely.
