LaMelo Ball remains non-committal with Big Baller Brand, says basketball is main focus

LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand are preparing for the future, but they still don’t have a commitment from their brightest young star, LaMelo Ball.

In this week’s episode of “Ball in the Family,” LaMelo told Big Baller Brand’s pitch team that he’s going to take his time and weigh all of his options before deciding who he’s going to sign a shoe deal with. TMZ Sports reported that Nike was one of the shoe companies “actively scouting” the 18-year-old guard.

“[Big Baller Brand] giving me things to think about that and I appreciate that. But the brands not where my head is. Right now, it’s just on basketball. It’s pretty much my main focus,” LaMelo said.

Those options include a new brand designer in Thomas “Moo” Torres, who previously worked for Adidas global basketball. Torres most notably designed the signature logo for NBA champion Nick Young.

LaVar – or at least the people around LaVar -seem to want to go about things the right way this time around, but unlike when they first launched the brand, LaMelo will have the opportunity to hear from other, most established brands.

We’ll see what decision LaMelo makes eventually, but until then, it sounds like he just wants to help the Illawarra Hawks have a successful season and continue to build his stock for the 2020 NBA Draft.
