LiAngelo, LaMelo Ball In Serious Talks With Lithuanian Team

LaVar Ball’s Sons Sign One Year Deal With Lithuanian Pro Team. Shanice Stephanie

They reportedly signed with sports agent Harrison Gaines, who represents their older brother, Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball. LaVar said he would have both his sons bypass college basketball and planned to search out pro jobs overseas.

If signed, the franchise has hopes that the Balls - including father LaVar - could be a marketing boon for the fledgling franchise, sources told ESPN.

LaVar pulled LaMelo from Chino Hills High School in October before removing LiAngelo from UCLA earlier this month rather than having him serve an indefinite suspension for shoplifting in China. Neither LiAngelo nor LaMelo has played in an official game above the high school level, but they will soon be facing off against seasoned veterans in Europe.

As for Prienai itself, it's a 10,000-person town on the Neman River in southern Lithuania.




After starting off the season losing their first nine games of the season, Vytautas was on a four-game winning streak that was just snapped Tuesday with a 103-102 double-overtime road loss.

The team is 4-1 in the Baltic League, its lone loss coming on a forfeiture. Tickets cost around 5 euros.

They both have signed a one- year deal and should be expected to join the club in the beginning of 2018. At 6-foot-3, he has shot-making ability, creativity as a ball handler and flashes as a facilitator. LiAngelo and LaMelo are starting their respective paths together, but the odds of success appear to be stacked against them.

It will be interesting to see how the two brothers adapt to the different style of play in Lithuania and perform in the Baltic league.
