Lonzo Ball is taking control of his NBA future.

The Lakers guard told the L.A. Times on Thursday he will be selecting his own agent, dispelling rumors his father LaVar is involved.

LaVar has widely been regarded as the decision-maker for Lonzo. But his friend Alan Foster, co-founder of the family's Big Baller Brand, is alleged to have stolen $1.5 million from the brand, causing the 21-year-old to cut ties with his own company, which he owns 51 percent of.

Ball parted ways with his agent Harrison Gaines on Thursday, but claims the Big Baller Brand scandal had nothing to do with the decision.
