Luke Walton isn’t worried about LaVar Ball‘s involvement with Lonzo Ball. Not yet, anyway. The head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers said someone will ask about Ball’s involvement at UCLA, but it’s not his job at the moment.

Walton spoke on The Dan Patrick Show on Friday and said every player the Lakers look at with the second overall pick in next month’s NBA Draft will get a full evaluation, whether that includes the way they interact with team managers or how their domineering fathers interact with those around the team.

Patrick asked why everyone assumes the Lakers will draft Lonzo Ball, which gave Walton a chance to rave about the UCLA standout’s abilities on the court.
