Lonzo Ball's father, LaVar Ball, has told ESPN that he would like his son to end up with the Phoenix Suns if he's traded by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Ball has been in trade talks involving Anthony Davis.

“We want to be in L.A.," said LaVar Ball. "But if he’s traded, I don’t want Lonzo in New Orleans. Phoenix is the best fit for him. And I am going to speak it into existence.”

Ball was drafted second overall by the Lakers in 2017.
