Reports: LiAngelo, LaMelo Ball sign with Lithuanian pro basketball team
LaVar Ball's sons signed with agents last week, making it impossible for them to play college basketball
Last week LaVar Ball announced that both of his younger sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo,, effectively ending any chance that either would play college basketball.
He also said that he wanted both 19-year-old LiAngelo and 16-year-old LaMelo, who was recently pulled out of Chino Hills high school, to both play for the same team overseas as they prepare for a potential NBA career.
It appears that LaVar may get his wish. On Monday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski announced that both LiAngelo and LaMelo are in serious discussions to sign with the Lithuanian pro basketball club Prienu Vytautas. Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports that the two Balls have signed a one-year and are expected to join the club at the start of 2018.
According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, the brothers would likely not play much for Prienu Vytautas, but could see more minutes in a lower-stakes league.
Talent evaluators have been skeptical of LiAngelo's NBA prospects, while LaMelo is the No. 15 overall prospect in his class, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
