LiAngelo Ball is the middle son of LaVar Ball, older brother of LaMelo Ball and younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.
The middle Ball son was thrust in the national spotlight prior to the 2017-18 college basketball season when he and two teammates — fellow freshman Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — were arrested for shoplifting in China.
Ball’s arrest in China led to a verbal back-and-forth in the media between his father and the president, Donald Trump, who wanted praise for helping free the trio of players. LaVar claimed Trump held no responsibility, while starting a very public war of words on social media and through interviews on CNN.
The trio was ultimately suspended indefinitely. That did not sit well with Big Baller Brand patriarch LaVar, which led to his withdrawal from UCLA.
LiAngelo went on to sign with an agent and will now head overseas to play professional basketball for Lithuanian club Vytautas Prienai–Birštonas along with his younger brother.

LiAngelo Ball Net Worth 2017
There is currently no official word on the middle Ball brother’s projected net worth. However, some reports indicate his youngest brother LaMelo could receive a monthly income of $125,000. Don’t feel too bad for LiAngelo, though, because he currently drives a Ferrari. Oh, and his outspoken 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.
LiAngelo, LaMelo sign six-month deal on low-level Lithuania team with coach and GM that speak ZERO English. Club is MONTHS behind on checks, and I'm told Ball Bros can peak at $4000 total. Max. Might not even get it. Cluture Shock.

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.
