LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball will be remaining in Lithuania until the summer.
On Thursday, it was announced that the Ball brothers will remain with Vytautas Prienu until June after the club exercised a guaranteed contract option for the two players to keep them for the remainder of the season.
From Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania:
As expected, LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball are in Lithuania to stay. Lithuanian club Vytautas Prienu will exercise contract guarantee options for LaMelo and LiAngelo this month, as the sides have committed to the remainder of the season through June, sources told Yahoo Sports.
LaMelo and LiAngelo — the younger brothers of Los Angeles Lakers starting point guard Lonzo Ball — turned professional Dec. 11, signing one-year contracts with Vytautas. For LaMelo and LiAngelo, the decision to sign in Lithuania has led to individual and team progress, and Vytautas team officials told Yahoo Sports the commitment for the remainder of the season has been a foregone conclusion.
Last month, LaMelo Ball recorded the first triple-double of his professional career during a Big Baller Brand Challenge Game where his father, LaVar, was serving as the team’s head coach.
