4 teams who should consider pursuing a trade for Lonzo Ball

Last season was Lonzo Ball’s first season in New Orleans, as he was sent to the Pelicans in the deal that sent Anthony Davis to the Lakers, and while he did perform well during the regular season, there were a lot of concerns within the Pelicans organization about his lack of effort down the stretch.

Ball averaged 11.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 7.0 assists and shot 40.3% from the floor during the entire regular season for the Pelicans, but during the NBA restart in the Orlando Bubble, Lonzo Ball only averaged 7.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists and shot just over 30% from the floor in the NBA Bubble. Not to mention, he turned the ball over 3 times per game on average.

When it mattered most, Lonzo Ball did not show up and it seemed like Lonzo Ball could not be bothered to play. This offseason, the Pelicans acquired Eric Bledsoe from the Milwaukee Bucks and also drafted their potential point guard of the future in Kira Lewis Jr. 

Early on this season, Lonzo Ball will have to fight for his roster spot moving forward and if he does not perform well, the Pelicans seem to have no problem moving on from the former 2nd overall pick. The reason we say this is because they declined to offer him a contract extension earlier this week. 

With the concerns about Ball moving forward and there being a small market for him, here are 4 teams who should consider pursuing a trade with the Pelicans in order to acquire Lonzo Ball.
