LaMelo Ball will officially never play college basketball after signing agent

Ball brothers sign with agent look to play overseas

Family agent Harrison Gaines' show of offering the younger brothers to teams worldwide has been met with responses ranging from polite skepticism to outright derision, noting that most global clubs are limited in the number of Americans they can employ and would be unlikely to want anything to do with the antics of LaVar that are of an idiom not well understood in other cultures. LaVar said his primary goal for his two sons is for them to go somewhere together where they can play and get back onto the court. "If LaVar starts talking trash over there about LaMelo's not playing enough, they won't get a paycheck", Broussard explained.

But what do you think about LaVar removing LiAngelo and LaMelo from their respective schools to pursue a possible opportunity for them to play together for an overseas team? However, the elder Ball told ESPN that won't be the case.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball told Goodman.

LiAngelo was suspended by UCLA after shoplifting during a basketball trip to China, and is no longer attending classes.

The two clashed following the detainment - and later release - of UCLA basketball players who were arrested last month on suspicion of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store while the team was in China.

LaMelo Ball withdrew from Chino Hills (Calif.) High early in his junior season. Gaines, who also represents Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball, has already reportedly been in contact with a handful of teams in Europe and Asia about the services of the Ball brothers, neither of whom has even played in a college game.

LaVar told ESPN, "I don't know the deals and who is offering what".

"He was going to struggle with the explosiveness and athleticism college basketball brings compared to high school".

"There will be three people with them all the time", Ball said.

LaMelo is widely considered to be a more valuable prospect than his older brother LiAngelo and is (was) among the Top-10 players for the Class of 2019.
