LaMelo Ball will never play college basketball after signing with agent

Ball has signed with an agent and will play overseas, effectively ending his collegiate career, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

LaVar Ball said that the plan for the younger LaMelo - who he pulled from Chino Hills (California) High School earlier this year - is to play at UCLA in two years.

That being said, LaVar wouldn't divulge any further details.

"One day after he abruptly removed his middle son from UCLA, LaVar Ball began his quest to prepare LiAngelo for next year's National Basketball Association draft". His father decided they weren't going to wait to find out the length of the indefinite suspension and removed him from the school.

Agent Harrison Gaines represents all three of Ball's sons, including Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo.

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? Ball then said he sent the President three pairs of Big Baller Brand shoes-one in red, one in white and one in blue-but that Trump didn't thank him for the gesture.

'He's not on any of our scouting lists - even the extended lists, ' one National Basketball Association general manager told Wojnarowski.

Online sports book Bovada had LiAngelo's chances of being drafted at -10000 on the moneyline, meaning anyone who took the extraordinarily long odds could win $10,000 on a mere $100 bet.

Signing with an agent would prevent LaMelo, who had been committed to UCLA, from playing college basketball. Lavar put everything on hold to care for his wife and make sure she recovered to be the woman she was.

Teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in the brothers, according to ESPN. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested".
