The Pelicans and Bulls agreed to a sign-and-trade deal on Monday that will send Lonzo Ball to the Windy City. In return, New Orleans will receive Tomas Satoransky, Garrett Temple, and a second-round draft pick. Ball had to sign a four-year, $85 million contract to make the deal happen, and he will likely see plenty of minutes as a starter during the 2021-22 campaign. The former Bruin averaged 14.6 points, 5.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals throughout 55 games last season. His health is an issue at times, and so are his below-average shooting percentages, although they have improved. Nonetheless, the 23-year-old is an all-around producer for fantasy managers, and his statistical output may increase in Chicago because of his enhanced role.
Free-agent guard Lonzo Ball received a $14.3 million qualifying offer from the Pelicans. This would make him a restricted free agent, allowing New Orleans to potentially match offers from other teams. After being drafted with the No. 2 overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft by Los Angeles, the Lakers moved on from the 23-year-old after only two seasons. However, Ball picked things up while with the Pelicans, and he finished the 2020-21 campaign by averaging 14.6 points, 5.7 assists, 4.8 boards, and 1.5 steals. The former Bruin can contribute in many areas, although fantasy managers in category leagues should be concerned with Ball's shoddy shooting percentages and inability to remain healthy over the years.
New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball has been rumored to be available this offseason. As of right now, it sounds like the Pelicans are unlikely going to match the significant offer sheet for Ball in restricted free agency. Teams such as the Bulls, Knicks, and even the Los Angeles Lakers could have interest in Ball. The Lakers might consider re-acquiring Ball, according to Marc Stein. On paper, having Ball would mean LeBron James and Anthony Davis wouldn't have to be the primary ball handlers as often. It certainly seems that a handful of teams have interest in Ball. He has been a streaky player, but possibly a move could help find some newfound value.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball is rumored to be on the Knicks' radar for the 2021-22 campaign. The addition of Ball will unquestionably fill a void for a New York team that is certainly lacking a suitable option in the backcourt, especially after the team went with many different options in the starting lineup during the regular season. The 23-year-old averaged a much-improved 14.6 points, 5.7 assists, 4.8 boards, and 1.5 steals during his second season as a Pelican, and since he is a restricted free agent, New Orleans will have the option to match any offer coming his way. However, given his asking price, that may be highly unlikely.
