Lonzo Ball said he was motivated and excited to have a full summer to work on his craft.

“I’m very, very motivated. I want to be the best I can be. I’m looking forward to this summer. I don’t look at it as added pressure, because I haven’t had a full summer yet to dedicate to myself. I have to keep working on my craft," said Ball.


Ball was shutdown for the season following complications related to his Grade 3 ankle sprain.

He added that he's not worried about potentially getting traded in the offseason. 

“At the end of the day, you can only control the things that you can control. If I get traded, then I get traded. But I’m going to be ready to go. The goal is to be the best player I can for whichever team.”
