LiAngelo Ball seems to have found a home in the NBA G League.
Originally slated to take part in the G League draft, The Athletic’s Shams Charania has updated their report on the 22-year-old goalkeeper, hoping he will sign an unsecured deal with the Charlotte Hornets.
The deal will allow Ball to adapt to Greensboro Swarm, the G League franchise affiliate.

Ball averaged 9.6 points per game over five appearances for the Hornets in Vegas, including 16 points in his debut with the team.
Previously, Ball had signed a training camp deal with the Detroit Pistons ahead of the 2020-21 season, but was released before opening night.
Ball is hoping to become the league’s third brother, with Lonzo moving to the Chicago Bulls this season while LaMelo looks to support a rookie of the year season with the Charlotte Hornets.
