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

LaVar Ball China Would Love to Have Gelo Back ... for His Pro Career

New trajectory for future plans

The plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas.

LaVar Ball told ESPN's Jeff Goodman on Thursday that his sons LaMelo and LiAngelo have signed with Harrison Gaines, who is the agent now representing Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.

"It's very hard for me to see him having a longterm pathway to success where he could make more money in basketball than he could have as a UCLA graduate", said NBA draft expert Sam Vecenie. LaMelo Ball will officially not follow his brothers Lonzo and LiAngelo to UCLA.

LaMelo Ball also withdrew from Chino Hills High School in California earlier this year. Ball will be spending his time between appearing on talk shows in the United States and overseas if this is the case.

Sources told ESPN that several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest. Harrison Gaines, who represents Lonzo, will take on his two brothers, as well.

Neither LiAngelo nor LaMelo is on the level of Lonzo Ball as a National Basketball Association prospect. "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 know the deals and who is offering what, ' Ball said. 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. "I have been at UCLA but I didn't go through what he is going through", the Lakers point guard said of giving his input.

LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo from UCLA on Monday, telling ESPN that he was frustrated that the school hadn't made a determination on the length of his son's suspension following an arrest for shoplifting while in China last month.
