LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Sign With Agent, Will Play Overseas

LaVar Ball told ESPN that his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have signed with agent Harrison Gaines, ending any speculation that LaMelo will play college basketball.

The 16-year-old guard and his older brother LiAngelo signed with Harrison Gaines, who also represents the eldest Ball brother, Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, LaVar said.

"I don't care about the money", father LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday morning.

LiAngelo Ball is not considered a National Basketball Association prospect and LaMelo just turned 16, and was pulled out of his high school earlier this year when LaVar Ball had disagreements with the coach.

LaVar Ball will be sending his younger sons overseas. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time". The plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas.

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

It's unclear where the pair will end up, but it will be interesting to see what level of basketball they end up playing at.

UCLA suspended LiAngelo Ball indefinitely after the shoplifting arrest, even though the charges were dropped.

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. That information comes from LaVar Ball.

"We have an opening at the security staff since they have an experience in this field", Stalbergs wrote".

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