LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball sign with Lonzo's agent, per report

LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball sign with Lonzo's agent, per report”

Adding to the continuing media circus that is the Ball family, LaVar Ball has chose 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.

"He's not going to play college basketball", the Big Baller Brand boss said.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said in an interview with ESPN.

LiAngelo and the other two freshmen were serving an indefinite suspension for the scandal, but LaVar told ESPN he was frustrated by the school's inability to reach a swift resolution.

LaVar Ball will be sending his younger sons overseas. LiAngelo would likely have been somewhere at the end of UCLA's rotation had he played this season - he's a stocky, 6-foot-5 shooter whose best position may be as a stretch four - while LaMelo is a young 16-year old that is still growing into his body. According to ESPN, the plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", LaVair said. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested". The former, an undersized power forward, might be hard-pressed to find a job overseas if not for name recognition, while it's unlikely the latter's flamboyant play-making flair will overcome his lack of physicality and unwillingness to play off the ball. "I just need to get them playing again". Lietkabelis coach Arturs Stalbergs subsequently scoffed at the idea in a since-deleted tweet that poked fun at LiAngelo's shoplifting arrest in China last month. Lonzo Ball has always been the best prospect of the three brothers, and UCLA received a stellar freshman year from him.
