Danny Ainge: Lonzo Ball’s Camp “Politely Said No” to Working Out With The Celtics

Following the NBA Draft Lottery, LaVar Ball made it clear that his son wanted to play for the Lakers and that he wouldn’t workout for any other team. Ball was serious when he said it. Danny Ainge revealed today that the Ball camp “politely” declined the Celtics workout offer. The explosive point guard is widely expected to be taken No.2 overall by the Lakers. Via ESPN:

“We tried to get [Ball] in,” Ainge told the “Toucher and Rich” program while Boston’s front-office staff traveled for a draft workout in New York that included Duke’s Harry Giles and Kentucky’s Malik Monk.

“We don’t deal with [Ball’s camp] all that much. They didn’t show up at the combine, which is very common — many of the top 10 or 15 players don’t show up for the combine. … We just tried to get him in for a workout and they politely said no.”
