We have heard Lonzo Ball's account of the moment he found out about getting traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in the deal that helped the Los Angeles Lakers land Anthony Davis. We've already heard that Lonzo found out on Twitter.
In the latest episode of the Facebook series Ball in the Family, Ball can be seen, at the 9:40 mark, sitting in the car when his manager D-Mo informs him of the Adrian Wojnarowski tweet that essentially confirmed that it was a done deal.
After discovering which one of his Lakers teammates was headed to New Orleans with him, Ball stayed silent for a little while before saying, "It's all good." His only issue may have been that he moved into a new home in Los Angeles just days before the trade was completed.
Ball received a call in the car from an excited Brandon Ingram who seemed happy with his new destination. "I'm excited though, bro," Lonzo told Ingram. "We going to be straight."
Lonzo's remarks in the show's confessional echo the same feelings that he has expressed in previous interviews.
"I was kind of excited, honestly. I kind of figured someone was going to get moved soon enough," Ball told ESPN. "I knew Anthony Davis wanted to come bad. Anytime you can get a guy like that, you are going to have to do what you have to do to get him. So I was kind of already just waiting for it, honestly, and I was happy to go with two guys I am comfortable with in B.I. [Brandon Ingram] and JHart [Josh Hart]. I am excited to see what we can do."
