LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Sign With Agent, to Play Overseas

LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Sign With Agent, to Play Overseas

LaVar Ball says he will likely travel internationally to support his younger sons wherever they sign to play and that their uncles will also make the trip.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, LiAngelo was said to have "no chance" at being drafted in the June NBA Draft, and 'that was true before his shoplifting incident in China'.

Ball will sign with the same agent as his old brother, Lakers guard and former UCLA standout Lonzo Ball.

LaVar's decision to hire an agent ends any chance of LaMelo (who's now ranked No. 7 nationally in ESPN's class of 2019 high school recruiting rankings) playing college basketball. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team". Playing overseas may be the only professional option for the younger Ball brothers.

LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo, withdrew from UCLA earlier this week, about a month fter he and two teammates caused an global stir by getting arrested on shoplifting charges during a team trip to China.

We got LaVar and LiAngelo at LAX. and the Big Baller dad told us the door's wide open for his middle child to hoop in the same place he was ARRESTED for shoplifting last month. "There will be three people with them all the time", he said. As for LiAngelo, that's no longer the case.

"He was going to struggle with the explosiveness and athleticism college basketball brings compared to high school".

The reports suggests several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers, though it's unclear what the offers are. The Ball family's decision effectively strips LiAngelo and LaMelo of their amateur status and prevents them from playing at the college level.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", Ball said.
