Lonzo Ball posts workout video in LaMelo Ball Puma gear
Lonzo Ball’s NBA future isn’t the only thing up in the air when it comes to basketball. While it’s unclear which team he will play for next season as he enters restricted free agency and looks set to leave New Orleans, he is also a longtime sneaker free agent.
Last summer, LaMelo signed with Puma and made it seem like Lonzo might follow suit soon. However, the offseason came and went and wwLonzo entered the year as a sneaker free agent, neither signing nor hinting at a deal.
His future in that department could also be decided this summer, and he could leave clues as to where he might land. On Wednesday night, he posted a workout video to Instagram where he wore a Puma LaMelo shirt from his limited edition line.
Putting discussion on Lonzo’s next sponsorship deal on hold, his playing and pullover look remarkably smooth in the clip. Even by summer training standards where everything looks easier, Ball’s sweater has hardly ever looked so smooth as he continues to work on it.
Getting back to his clothes, it’s likely that in this scenario Ball was just supporting his brother. But as someone who has worn Kobe shoes and Nike shoes almost exclusively, Nike would likely be a favorite. At the same time, his brother is with Puma and one of his closest friends at Zion Williamson is with Air Jordan, which makes for an interesting decision that could possibly be made.
