LiAngelo, LaMelo Ball Sign With Lonzo's Agent, Will Play Overseas

Posted December 09, 2017

Sources told ESPN that several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest.

Earlier this week, Lavar Ball had said LaMelo Ball would still play for UCLA, but Thursday morning, he said LaMelo Ball will not play college basketball. Nevertheless, the decision to keep trying to harp on this has become a staple in Ball's effort to keep his "Big Baller Brand" relevant while his two younger sons try to get signed to play overseas.

At every turn of his self-centered basketball circus, LaVar Ball can count on a sizable number of vocal supporters insisting that he and his overpriced shoes are a step ahead, with each next freakish turn just a well-considered move in some game of chess whose rules only he understands.

The two clashed following the detainment - and later release - of UCLA basketball players who were arrested last month on suspicion of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store while the team was in China.

"One day after he abruptly removed his middle son from UCLA, LaVar Ball began his quest to prepare LiAngelo for next year's National Basketball Association draft. I'm not going to say I know for a fact he couldn't defend at that level, but he has never had to do it before and his overall athletic profile doesn't bode well in the future".

"There will be three people with them all the time", Ball said.

Gaines also represents the oldest of the Ball brothers, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball. "I'll go back and forth and probably stay out there a while at first". "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested".
