If Lonzo Ball signs a significant offer sheet with a rival team in restricted free agency, sources tell The Athletic that the New Orleans Pelicans are unlikely to match.

The Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers are among the teams expected to pursue Ball.

Ball had a productive season with the Pelicans in 20-21, averaging 14.6 points while shooting 37.8 percent on three-pointers.

The Pelicans acquired Ball in 2019 as part of the Anthony Davis trade.
