It has been a tumultuous couple of weeks for Lonzo Ball, to say the least. The Los Angeles Lakers point guard has been dealing with betrayal at the hands of a family friend who allegedly stole $1.5 million from him. Meanwhile, rumors swirled that the family company, the Big Baller Brand was going to be disbanded. Then, if things couldn't get any crazier, Ball parted ways with his agent Harrison Gaines, which apparently had nothing to do with the situation over at BBB.
According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, it appears as though Lonzo has found himself some new representation in CAA.
"After thinking about this decision over the last few weeks, I concluded that CAA made the most sense for my career both on and off the court," Ball explained to ESPN. "With CAA now in place to manage my basketball career, I can focus my attention and energy on training for the upcoming season."

As for LiAngelo and LaMelo, it is still unclear as to who they will be represented by moving forward as they try to enter the NBA.
