Ball brothers sign with agent, look to play overseas

Ball brothers sign with agent, look to play overseas

"The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA.

LiAngelo Ball was yanked out of UCLA on Monday because his dad was upset over the disciplinary actions taken by the school after LiAngelo and two other teammates were arrested for shoplifting in China in October.

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 LiAngelo Ball-UCLA saga ended earlier this week with only a few statistics.

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 find it ironic, however, in the same sense that Trump is praised for his willingness to speak his mind - politically correct or not - and for his outspoken personality, Lavar Ball is criticized and has his parental skills questioned.

A professional team in Lithuania has offered the Ball Brothers a job, but not the one they are looking for. Lavar put everything on hold to care for his wife and make sure she recovered to be the woman she was.

Sources told ESPN that the brothers are being considered by teams in Europe and Asia, where a few American high schoolers have previously gone to play professionally while preparing for the National Basketball Association draft. "I just need to get them playing again".

I'll be the first to admit, I didn't think much of the Ball family when I first heard about three brothers in California who were hyped to be the next great family in basketball.
