Lonzo Ball, a freshman point guard at UCLA, is projected to be a top-5 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
Per USA Today:
During the interview, Ball also said he is prepared to package Lonzo and his two other sons — LiAngelo, a high school senior who has signed with UCLA, and LaMelo, a high school sophomore who has committed to UCLA — for a marketing deal with Nike, Adidas or Under Armour.
“A billion dollars, it has to be there,” Ball said.
“That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years.”
