Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball has agreed to part ways with his agent Harrison Gaines, per ESPN.
In a statement to ESPN Ball said:
“Harrison Gaines has been a trusted advisor and 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 departed UCLA for a professional career.
Ball was his first client and he later went on to create SLASH Sports, an agency that represents several other former NBA players, including Jamal Franklin and Jabari Brown among others.
What a week it’s been for Lonzo.
He filed a lawsuit against Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster for using a “fraudulent scheme” that took money away from him.
Ball said that the decision to part ways with Gaines was unrelated.
“Harrison has always had my back and although we will no longer be working together after mutually deciding to part ways; our relationship will always be bigger than basketball,” Ball’s statement to ESPN continued.
Something’s going on with Lonzo behind the scenes.
