LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Sign With Agent, to Play Overseas

LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Sign With Agent, to Play Overseas

"LiAngelo needed UCLA more than they needed him!"

LaVar Ball told Jeff Goodman that he'll deputize a trio of Ball uncles to accompany the brothers wherever they go and help prepare them for an National Basketball Association future.

LiAngelo Ball and fellow freshmen basketball players Cody Riley and Jalen Hill created an global incident that eventually involved President Donald Trump. LiAngelo doesn't project out to be an National Basketball Association player, and while LaMelo is a top recruit, he's also 16 years old and years away from possible draft eligibility. Lavar Ball said he is not concerned with the money, but wants his sons to be playing basketball again - on the same team and on the court at the same time. The players were arrested for shoplifting during a team trip.

Earlier in the week, LaVar reiterated his pipe dream of trying to get LiAngelo and LaMelo to team with their older brother, Lonzo, on the Los Angeles Lakers, but of course, that's as far-fetched as any of his boasts.

Gaines has yet to respond to a request for comment. Playing overseas may be the only professional option for the younger Ball brothers. Along with fellow freshman Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, LiAngelo admittedly stole designer sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, where the team was staying ahead of their season opener against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on November 10. The biggest baller in America has chose to tweet out an animation involving himself and the President of the United States, and it appears that Ball wants to keep this beef going for a while.

Upon their arrival in Los Angeles, it was announced that all three would be suspended indefinitely by the School. His father decided they weren't going to wait to find out the length of the indefinite suspension and removed him from the school.

Shohei Ohtani might not make his decision until next week, per reports
While there is no timetable for a decision, one can expect it to be made around the winter meetings, which begin on December 10. Banuelos was probably the Mariners' top catching prospect in their minor league system, certainly from a defensive standpoint.


"Mr. Ball was the only youngster of the three to steal from three stores (in China)", Vitale said.

If LiAngelo does not play overseas he could play in the NBA's developmental league, the G-League, and enter into the 2018 NBA Draft since he is now 19. It's a future that has nearly certainly been made more unlikely by this move.

LaMelo's NCAA eligibility was already uncertain after LaVar decided to make a signature shoe for his youngest son with the his athletic apparel company, Big Baller Brand.

On Thursday, though, LaVar put that dilemma to rest.

The announcement came days after LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA, where he had enrolled on a basketball scholarship, due to his dissatisfaction with the school's disciplinary process.
