After NBA free agency started at 6 p.m. ET on Monday, Lonzo Ball signed an offer sheet with the Chicago Bulls for a four-year, $85 million contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic According to Charania, Tomas Satoransky, Garrett Temple, and a second-round draught selection will be sent to the Pelicans as part of the transaction.
In his fourth NBA season, the Pelicans’ former No. 2 overall draught selection averaged 14.6 points (on 41/38/78 shooting splits), 5.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.1 steals and blocks combined in 31.8 minutes across 55 games. He was a vital member of the New Orleans team, playing with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
Ball was hailed as a terrific facilitator with excellent vision in the open court, but he struggled to shoot from distance when he first entered the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers’ first assessment of Ball was that he was an overhyped talent, and he was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in the Anthony Davis trade.
Ball had two head coaches in his first two seasons in New Orleans. Both teams were unable to score a playoff goal. Despite this, Ball has improved significantly as a 3-point shooter (37.6% on 7.2 tries per game over the previous two years) and defender when called upon. His emphasis is still to create for others, which makes the 23-year-old point guard a sought-after contributor amid players whose primary duty is to score. (NBA)
In the months leading up to Ball’s free agency, a number of potential sign-and-trade scenarios were in the works. The Chicago Bulls were generally touted as being the team’s top choice for a trade partner. Additionally, the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers were reportedly interested. Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks are also interested in point guards.
