LaVar: Sons LiAngelo, LaMelo sign with agent

LaVar: Sons LiAngelo, LaMelo sign with agent

Ball has signed with an agent and will play overseas, effectively ending his collegiate career, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team". Ball will be spending his time between appearing on talk shows in the United States and overseas if this is the case. In September, Ball pulled his youngest son, LaMelo, from Chino Hills High School in California, announcing that he would be home-schooled before eventually enrolling at UCLA like LiAngelo and Lonzo, the eldest Ball son who now plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested.

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.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", Ball said.

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.

Ball said he will likely spend time wherever his two youngest sons wind up playing, and he also intends to have their uncles go over and help. "I'll go back and forth and probably stay out there a while at first".

Earlier this week, LiAngelo, a would-be freshman, parted ways with UCLA as the result of a program-levied suspension gleaned from his arrest for shoplifting on a team trip to China.
