Ball brothers sign with agent, look to play overseas

After his decision to withdraw LiAngelo from UCLA, LaVar decided that his youngest son, LaMelo, would also not play college basketball.

Adding to the continuing media circus that is the Ball family, LaVar Ball has made a decision to sign not just his son LiAngelo Ball (who was recently removed from UCLA by LaVar) with an agent, but also his youngest son, 16-year-old LaMelo Ball.

However, the National Basketball Association has what is known as the 'one-and-done rule, ' requiring players to be at least one year removed from high school or at least 19 years of age before entering the league, which is why the pair are looking to sign outside the United States. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

Among the overseas professional clubs that a representative for the Ball family approached about signing 19-year-old LiAngelo and his 16-year-old brother LaMelo is Lietkabelis of the Lithuanian Basketball League, general manager Mantas Ignatavičius confirmed Tuesday to Yahoo Sports.

"It's very hard for me to see him having a longterm pathway to success where he could make more money in basketball than he could have as a UCLA graduate", said NBA draft expert Sam Vecenie. No charges were filed against LiAngelo or teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill.

"There will be three people with them all the time", Ball said. Despite the shoplifting incident, there is no legal reason that would stop the brothers from playing in China. The NCAA forbids players from signing endorsement deals and could have intervened if LaMelo ever attempted to play for the Bruins. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested".

But what do you think about LaVar removing LiAngelo and LaMelo from their respective schools to pursue a possible opportunity for them to play together for an overseas team? LaVar said his primary goal for his two sons is for them to go somewhere together where they can play and get back onto the court.

Meanwhile, Bruins Coach Steve Alford said he has yet to speak with the Balls since LiAngelo left the program earlier this week.
