Lonzo Ball is considered as one of the future stars the NBA will have to offer. However, the 21-year-old may not blossom into one if he continues to play for the Los Angeles Lakers and behind LeBron James.

Despite the distractions that his father, LaVar Ball, has been creating, there is no denying that the Lonzo can shine with more playing time and with a comfortable system. He has shown signs of brilliance, although it remains he plays second fiddle to James at the moment.

Should Ball eventually move out of Hollywood, he would be another promising young star the Lakers have wasted. So far, the list of promising young NBA cagers who have gone on to shine with their new teams includes Julius Randle, Larry Nance Jr., Jordan Clarkson, and D'Angelo Russell. With the right team, Ball could follow in their footsteps.

So the next question is: where could Ball shine? Fansided suggested that the second overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft could be a key addition to the Bulls, though it would come with a hitch. He would need a good backcourt partner to gel with to make it all work.

At the moment, the Bulls have Kris Dunn and former Villanova Wildcats standout Ryan Arcidiacono. The Bulls have not gotten much mileage from the two, hinting that one may end up getting shipped. Between the two, it seems like Dunn could be on his way out -- if not packaged for a deal involving Lonzo Ball.

Hence, finding the right partner may come either from the 2019 NBA Rookie Draft or the available guards in free agency. One name that comes to mind is Ricky Rubio although his offense remains suspect - similar to the criticism Ball has gotten with his shooting stroke.

Before anything else, a trade involving Ball will depend on the Lakers. It has yet to be known who they would want in exchange for the promising young guard - assuming they are open to an NBA trade with Chicago.

As far as Ball is concerned, playing for the Lakers, Bulls or whichever NBA team hardly matters. As mentioned in a previous post, all he wants to do is play basketball and be the best player for that particular team.
