LaVar Ball is not the only person who thinks that his son fits well with Phoenix.
If the Suns somehow bought the Lonzo Ball from Los Angeles Lakers for the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, some NBA writers see it as a very good move for the franchise.
They were delighted by the potential fit of the point guard in Phoenix alongside Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton after the news came Monday that Lonzo Ball's dad, Lavar Ball, wanted his son to go to Phoenix if he was traded from Los Angeles.
"We want to be with L.A.," LaVar Ball told ESPN. But if he is traded, I do not want Lonzo in New Orleans, Phoenix is best suited for him, and I will speak it in existence. & # 39;

It is assumed that the Suns should join a three-stage trade with the New Orleans Pelicans and Lakers to buy Lonzo Ball and it is not known what Phoenix should give up to get the point guard.
It is believed that Los Angeles has offered a package of young players and picks to New Orleans in an attempt to acquire Anthony Davis.
It is unknown whether the pelicans seriously consider exchanging Davis, who wants to be treated before the deadline.
But that does not stop NBA experts from imagining what effect Lonzo Ball can have on the Suns.

Frank Urbina writes: "Ball and the Phoenix Suns would be an interesting match, because the UCLA product would fill the largest hole in Phoenix for years: the point-guard position Ball has not yet set the world on fire pro, but he has shown flashes as a unique difference in the place where the leader waits, with a mix of clever passing and defensive acumen that help him to fall apart. In addition to Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, Ball was able to complete the team's big team. Three of the future, but if the Davis deal does not flourish, there is little chance that Ball will go somewhere before the Thursday deadline. "

Deadspin: Lonzo Ball To The Suns is in fact an extremely cool idea
Chris Thompson writes: "So the Suns could complement Los Angeles's best offer by reorienting Lonzo and offsetting a combination of their own young players and draft picks – it should be worth it for the Suns, if it means that you finally have to get a young point-guard to take a share of Booker's burden, and when it finally presents the shape of their future core, they've been in the desolate hinterland for more than four years now NBA basketball in the habit of following the basketball wisdom of LaVar Ball, a man who has turned three talented sons into two unassailable nomads and a miserable head-case, but this is a good idea LaVar had, and the NBA would be better and cooler if he had this wish.

Evan Sidery writes: "The Suns still have to fill the void at the point watch that Eric Bledsoe left 15 months ago, so Ball is about to be the answer? Even though Ball is still a member of the Lakers, his camp wants clear that Phoenix is going to work for him for the Davis trade. "As I wrote last week, I believe that Lonzo Ball would be an on-court position alongside Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton." Ball is the ideal companion and defender between the two young pillars of the Suns. "

Joseph Zucker writes: "While Ball would probably be the No. 1 option at the point where he is going, Phoenix would offer one of the easiest paths for the start rotation." The Suns throw De & # 39; Anthony Melton and Elie Okobo on point guard, with Devin Booker who passed the guard to commit the offense, along with Booker and 2018 No. 1 concept choice Deandre Ayton, Ball would play a key role in the future of the franchise.

Ohm Youngmisuk writes: "In addition to the fact that Booker was the star of the franchise, Phoenix Center selected Deandre Ayton with the best choice in last year's design, Phoenix could be helped by an athletic, pass-first-point guard like Ball. pointguards average 8.6 points per game, the least between starting points waiting in the league, that number decreasing to 6.9 points per game and 3.6 assists per game when closing the games Booker started at point guard.
