Lonzo Ball, agent part ways; decision unrelated to BBB lawsuit

Lonzo Ball, agent part ways; decision unrelated to BBB lawsuit

Gaines has been his agent since Ball declared for the National Basketball Association draft back in April of 2017.

In a statement to ESPN Ball said, "Harrison Gaines has been a trusted advisor and close friend for many years".

The plan was for the Los Angeles Lakers' second-year guard to become his own man, but LaVar Ball has re-emerged as the shot-caller in orchestrating his son's next pivotal move, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The news came just weeks after Ball ended his relationship with Big Baller Brand due to more nefarious circumstances.

But there are concerns from respective agents with LaVar's involvement and where the family stands financially with the failed Big Baller Brand, sources said.

Rachel Weisz to feature in Scarlett Johansson starrer 'Black Widow' movie?
The actor is, of course, best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Chief Jim Hopper on the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things . For now, no release date has been announced for Black Widow , but you can catch Harbour in Hellboy when it comes out April 12.

Ball told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne late Thursday night that he and his agent, Harrison Gaines, have mutually agreed to part ways.

"He has been nothing short of phenomenal and is one of the bright young NBA Stars".

Ball recently made headlines after cutting ties with former Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster and he is taking legal action against him now.

"Lonzo Ball was the first client to sign with me". I wish Lonzo great success in the future. While Ball may garner some unnecessary attention at times, there should be no shortage of interest in agents looking to represent him moving forward.

Ball has been out of action since January 21 with an ankle injury. He last played in January, and in 47 games this season, he averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists.
