LaVar Ball: I want all my three boys to play for the Lakers. But if that does not happen. I’m telling you the story what’s gonna happen first. If they don’t take Gelo this year, I bring back Gelo here (Prienai) to play with Melo for two years. Lonzo will be on his third year and I want let every NBA team know. that Lonzo is not going to resign with the Lakers but will go to any leans that will take all of my three lboys. That’s my plan. Lonzo plays best when he is with his brother. Why wouldn’t — he is hell of a shooter. They don’t play the same position. You see how successful he was when he was with his brother? Why wouldn’t you be smart and say: so, you want your brother? Come on. let’s complete the Royal Flush and get the other brother.

J. Michael Falgoust: GM Chad Buchanan on Duarte: “Great work ethic… great toughness. He’s a guy we’ve tracked over the last 2 years. His shooting has improved. His ball handling has improved. He may be 24 years old but he started playing basketball as a teenager.” #Pacers
