LaVar Ball's Sons Sign One Year Deal With Lithuanian Pro Team

Report: LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball Nearing Deal With Lithuanian Club

Basketball-crazed Lithuania woke to, with Ball brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo signing a contract through the end of the season with Prienu Vytautas, now tied for last place in the 10-team Lithuanian (LKL) league.

LiAngelo and LaMelo are the younger brothers of Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball.

Vytautas plays in the Lithuanian (LKL) league and also plays Baltic League.

Vytautas fields teams in both the Lithuanian and Baltic leagues, with the latter the lesser competitive of the two circuits.

The Prienai-Birstonas Vytautas club, which plays in the Lithuanian league, said in a statement that the brothers will report to the club "in early January".




LiAngelo, 19, recently withdrew from UCLA shortly after a shoplifting scandal that led to the arrest and suspension of three Bruins players while overseas in China.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar told ESPN last week. They are apparently having serious financial problems, and they reportedly have no general manager and can't afford to host practices. The game was abandoned with 3 minutes to go at 65-65 after the coach was ejected due to some questionable calls.

Lithuania is a basketball-crazed country where players pride themselves on their advanced feel for the game and discipline.

The news comes after reports that LiAngelo and LaMelo were mulling options to sign internationally, according to Yahoo Sports.

For now, the Ball brothers are only locked in for one month, as both sides have the option to terminate the contract if all parties aren't satisfied with the arrangement.
