Ball Brothers Sign With Tiny Lithuanian Club

The incident occurred during the team's preseason tour in China and caused an worldwide media frenzy, including multiple tweets from the President of the United States directed at the father of the family, LaVar Ball.

Wojnarowski noted that the club is expected to make its final decision on the Ball boys in the next day or two.

Valanciunas - the 5th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft - is a Lithuanian legend. he won the LKL Lithuanian league championship in 2010 and is a 3-time Lithuanian Basketball Player of the Year.

Talent evaluators have been skeptical of LiAngelo's National Basketball Association prospects, while LaMelo is the No. 15 overall prospect in his class, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Nineteen-year-old LiAngelo Ball recently gave up his UCLA scholarship after a shoplifting incident in China left him, along with two teammates, suspended from the team indefinitely.

Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports reports the deal is done. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time".

LiAngelo did not appear in a game for the Bruins this season before leaving school. He was rated as a three-star college prospect by most recruiting publications. In fact, the brothers are both signing with the same club. LaMelo scored 92 in a game in February and LiAngelo had a 72-point performance last December.

ESPN also reported that the two Ball brothers are meant to move to Europe in January.

Former Knicks forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas began his professional basketball career playing in the Lithuanian league. Lonzo and the Lakers will play the Knicks on Tuesday.
