Ball brothers sign with agent, look to play overseas

Ball brothers sign with agent, look to play overseas

After pulling LaMelo out of Chino Hills High School early in his junior season, LaVar also pulled LiAngelo from UCLA following his displeasure with the school's handling of his son's suspension following his shoplifting incident in China. LaVar said, when we asked if China would welcome Gelo back. Then his father, LaVar, pulled him for home-schooling.

LaMelo is nearing 6-feet-6 and could be as talented as older brother Lonzo, who plays for the Lakers.

Unfortunately for LiAngelo, the National Basketball Association is not almost as high on his potential as his brothers'.

A professional team in Lithuania has offered the Ball Brothers a job, but not the one they are looking for.

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. As for LiAngelo, that's no longer the case. Conversely, it would take a $2,500 bet on LiAngelo going undrafted to win only $100 - a significantly more likely scenario. The NCAA forbids players from signing endorsement deals and could have intervened if LaMelo ever attempted to play for the Bruins. Lavar put everything on hold to care for his wife and make sure she recovered to be the woman she was.

According to Goodman, several teams in Europe and Asia (presumably not in China) have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers. He just posted a video of his animated self dunking on an animated Trump who, I must say, looks much skinnier as an emoji. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested". The Ball family's decision effectively strips LiAngelo and LaMelo of their amateur status and prevents them from playing at the college level.
