Former UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball and his younger brother, LaMelo, are reportedly in “serious discussions” to play professionally overseas. The news comes after LiAngelo was pulled from UCLA following an indefinite suspension for his arrest in China. LaVar had previously pulled LaMelo from Chino Hills High School to focus on training for his future on the court.
The duo of players have already signed with agent Harrison Gaines, older brother Lonzo’s agent.
If their deal is ultimately finalized, LaMelo and LiAngelo could end up playing together for Lithuanian club Prienu Vytautas.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com shared the news.
While it isn’t a high-profile club, Big Baller Brand patriarch LaVar said money is not their main focus. Instead, the brothers simply want to play together.
With seemingly no offers from Europe’s top clubs, this could be the opportunity LaMelo and LiAngelo are looking for to reboot their careers.
