“LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have reached an agreement to sign professional basketball deals with Lithuanian club Prienu Vytautas.”
But, there are concerns about these two being able to fit in at all here. Plus, this deal isn’t entirely about he basketball side of things. Or so it seems.
“The franchise is hoping the Ball brothers – and father LaVar – can be a publicity boon to the fledgling organization.”
Additionally, LaVar might not like this next part too much.
“Vytautas plays in the Lithuanian (LKL) league, but it is unlikely the Ball brothers would see significant playing time in that league. Vytautas also plays in the lesser competitive Baltic League, where the teenagers could see more playing time. The team has discussed a role of 20 to 25 minutes a game apiece in the Baltic League, a source told ESPN.”
After signing with an agent, the Ball brothers are no longer eligible to return to UCLA.
