Phil Knight said Nike would be interested in signing Lonzo Ball to an endorsement deal. Knight also has has no issues with his father, LaVar Ball, seeking a $1 billion deal for a shoe and apparel deal for all three of his sons.

“If he can get it, get it,’’ Knight said.

That amount doesn't appear like it will come from Nike.

“It’s a little steep,’’ said Knight.

Knight then talked about Nike's interest in Ball.

“He’s an awfully great player. Yeah, we have an interest.”
