LaVar: Sons LiAngelo, LaMelo sign with agent

Lavar Ball told ESPN on Thursday morning that his two younger sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, have both signed with agent Harrison Gaines with the intention of playing overseas.

The President received the thanks of the players at a news conference later that day, where they also apologized for their behavior. The famous patriarch of the family plans to have his two younger sons play together overseas.

LiAngelo Ball is not considered a National Basketball Association prospect and LaMelo just turned 16, and was pulled out of his high school earlier this year when LaVar Ball had disagreements with the coach.

LaMelo Ball withdrew from Chino Hills (Calif.) High early in his junior season.

The reports suggests several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers, though it's unclear what the offers are.

Signing with an agent makes a high school player ineligible to play college basketball with only rare exceptions. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

The feud between LaVar Ball and President Donald Trump has been fairly quiet this week. "If they are over there, I wish them the best", Ball said.

Earlier in the week, LaVar reiterated his pipe dream of trying to get LiAngelo and LaMelo to team with their older brother, Lonzo, on the Los Angeles Lakers, but of course, that's as far-fetched as any of his boasts. Lonzo Ball has always been the best prospect of the three brothers, and UCLA received a stellar freshman year from him. "I'll go back and forth and probably stay out there a while at first".
