Players who have signed with agents are prohibited by the NCAA from playing college basketball, which means LiAngelo will be turning pro along with younger brother LaMelo, a top recruit who had previously declared his intention to follow his older brothers' lead and attend UCLA.
ESPNreports that multiple teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in bringing the younger Ball brothers aboard. Harrison Gaines, who represents Lonzo, will take on his two brothers, as well. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".
After pulling LaMelo out of Chino Hills High School early in his junior season, LaVar also pulled LiAngelo from UCLA following his displeasure with the school's handling of his son's suspension following his shoplifting incident in China.
N. Korean missile risk leads airlines to change routes
Any missile launches must be reported to the International Civil Aviation Organization to assure the safety of civilian aircraft. The airlines now reportedly avoid crossing directly over the Sea of Japan when approaching the region from Europe.
LiAngelo Ball is not considered an National Basketball Association prospect, but LaMelo Ball might be, depending on his development. Lonzo Ball has always been the best prospect of the three brothers, and UCLA received a stellar freshman year from him.
Neither LiAngelo nor LaMelo are projected to be as good as Lonzo, who was selected in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Lakers after a standout freshman season at UCLA. "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". "I don't care about the money", father LaVar Balltold ESPN on Thursday morning. LaVar said his primary goal for his two sons is for them to go somewhere together where they can play and get back onto the court.
