Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Make pay-for-play in college legal

Associated Press

"I do [think they should be paid]". Following the Lakers' morning shootaround Friday, Coach Luke Walton said Ball would play with a minutes restriction, and that he will not play Saturday in Sacramento on the second night of a back-to-back. Everybody's getting paid anyway, you might as well just make it legal. Ball was asked about the topic today following a Yahoo Sports report that outlined several top programs and players who named in the FBI's investigation into corruption of college hoops. "That's how I feel". Despite all of the headaches that are caused by his father, LaVar, Ball has been very productive and has had a direct impact on the Los Angeles Lakers in year one. "All the money they generate for the programs and stuff, it's kind of an unfair system". Durant told reporters Friday. "He's been out a long time, so we've got to decide where he'll be able to have his best chance of succeeding when he's playing".
