Lonzo Ball’s upcoming free agency will be one of the more discussed of any player on the market this offseason, a byproduct both of his popularity and skillset and the dehydrated market. As a result, every move he makes or hints at will be psychoanalyzed until free agency begins in August.

All of that precursor is to set up a video Ball posted to his Instagram on Thursday which will likely be subject to that over-analyzing. In a (pretty clearly) sponsored post, Ball shouted out Bulls guard Zach LaVine and retired superstar and Jazz owner Dwyane Wade for their performance on TBS’ new show The Cube.

The Bulls are going to be one of the teams most heavily linked to Ball this offseason. During the season, Chicago was the team that pursued Ball the hardest on the trade market. Add in the news on Thursday that one of the Bulls few guards on the roster, Coby White, had undergone surgery that would keep him out four months and may put the beginning of his season in jeopardy and the need for a point guard in Chicago is even greater.

Naturally, Ball shouting out LaVine, the star of the Bulls, on Instagram then would create a buzz and the comments of Ball’s post immediately jumped to that conclusion. Considering it’s only June, it’s set up to be a long offseason for Ball fans.
