LaMelo Ball is the youngest of Big Baller Brand CEO LaVar Ball’s three sons, and perhaps the most talented.
The 16-year-old point guard was ranked as the No. 15 overall recruit in the Class of 2019 and the No. 4 point guard in the nation. Ball had been committed to play for the UCLA basketball program.
However, Ball was pulled from Chino Hills High School (Calif.) ahead of his junior year in order to avoid distractions and focus on training for the NBA. The 16-year-old also received his own signature shoe from the family company, the Big Baller Brand Melo 1, and has since signed with an agent which ends any chance of playing at the collegiate level.
On Dec. 11, reports surfaced that Ball and his older brother, LiAngelo, signed to play for professional club Vytautas Prienai–Birštonas in Lithuania.

LaMelo Ball Net Worth 2017
No official net worth is known for the youngest Ball brother, but some rumors indicate he could receive a monthly allowance of at least $125,000. The 16-year-old also received a brand new Lamborghini for his birthday.
Their father, LaVar, has a projected net worth of $3 million.
As for what LiAngelo could add to his bank account from his professional account overseas, it is very possible the brothers will be making zero cash.
From what I'm told, salaries for players at this level of competition usually don't exceed $500 per month in the absolute best case. It wouldn't surprise me if the Ball brothers ended up playing for free. Certainly not the most glamorous league or part of the world to live in.
