Lately around school I’ve been hearing that people think that Lonzo Ball should go to the G- League due to the lack of production.The Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard hasn’t lived up to the hype through the first 15 games of his NBA career, and Nick Wright believes it’s time for the Lakers to make a move.
The G-League, formerly known as the Developmental League, is where young players who have yet to prove they belong in the league cut their teeth, and Wright believes it will help Ball regain his confidence.
“So what I would do with Lonzo is, I would consider putting him in the G-League,” Wright said. “If you’re not going to play him, in 20 minutes, and he’s not going to have any confidence, I would say, because we know Lonzo can hit some free throws, he hit about 70 percent in college. We know he can finish around the rim, he had an above 70 percent field goal percentage in the paint in college. We know he’s not the worst 3-point shooter in the world, he was an above average, not great but above average 3-point shooter in college.
In my opinion they shouldn’t send him to the G League he is still a rookie he has to get accustomed to the style of play in the NBA. Just give him a little more time to develop.
