Lonzo Ball and the agent of the Lakers agree to separate, according to report



The reconstruction of Lonzo Ball continues. This time, Ball has agreed to part with his agent Harrison Gaines, on ESPN.

In a statement to ESPN Ball, he said: "Harrison Gaines has been a trusted advisor and a close friend for many years, he guided my NBA career with integrity and always had my best interests at heart."

Gaines has been Ball's agent since the guard left UCLA for a professional career. Ball was his first client and later he created SLASH Sports, an agency that represents other ex-players of the NBA, among them Jamal Franklin and Jabari Brown, among others.

Lonzo continues to rebuild

The game of Ball with Gaines is one of the many moves made by the Lakers guard in recent weeks.

This week, he filed a lawsuit against Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster for using a "fraudulent plan" that took his money.

Ball said the decision to separate from Gaines was not related. "Harrison has always supported me, and even if we no longer work together after deciding in parts, our relationship will always be bigger than basketball," Ball continued on ESPN.

Before suing Foster, Ball distanced himself from his family's Big Baller brand. First, Ball posted a photo on Instagram suggesting a possible union with Nike. Later, he had his Big Baller brand tattoo covered with a pair of dice.

The young ball player was closed in early March due to a left ankle injury.
