Lonzo Ball has found a new agency and will be represented by Creative Artists Agency, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

The last month has been a whirlwind for Lonzo Ball. Not only has he been dealing with rehabbing an ankle injury that cost him the last three months of his sophomore season but he’s also been dealing with issues off the court.

Less than a week ago Ball and his agent Harrison Gaines mutually parted ways leaving a hole for the 21-year old to fill. This was a decision that came fresh off the scandal with Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster but the two situations were unrelated according to Ball.

He wasted no time in finding new representation and now is working with one of the premier agencies in both sports and entertainment. CAA has a number of high-level clients such as Dwyane Wade, Paul George, Joel Embiid as well as three former Lakers in Chris Paul, D’Angelo Russell, and Julius Randle. (Yes, we’re aware Chris Paul was not actually a Laker.)

At this time it is unknown which specific agent will represent Ball but he has taken the first step toward resolving this situation.
