Ball brothers officially sign with Lithuania team

Lonzo Ball La Melo Ball Li Angelo Ball and La Var Ball attend Melo Ball's 16th Birthday

Eccentric sports dad Lavar Ball has stayed true to his word of searching out an overseas basketball team to take on sons LiAngelo and LaMelo.

LiAngelo left UCLA this month after being suspended from the team for shoplifting while in China.

LaMelo, 16, was pulled out of Chino Hills High School by his father, who said he would be homeschooling his youngest son after disputes with the head coach and school administration. He went on to say that the language barrier would be "no problem at all" for the Ball brothers because everyone in Lithuania speaks English, particularly the younger generation. According to Woj, the brothers will see most of their playing time in the Baltic League, and there are plenty of reasons to think that Vytautas is primarily signing the two teens for marketing reasons.

Lindsey Vonn Says She's Competing For America, Not Trump, In Olympics
Vonn became a star in 2010, when she won the gold medal in the Vancouver Olympics. Instead, Vonn is looking to represent her fellow Americans.

It is not yet known if the brothers will play in the Lithuanian league, or the less competitive Baltic league, in which Vytautas also competes, but considering their age and lack of experience, the Baltic league seems more likely. The team has been grappling with financial issues, and started the season losing 8 of its first 12 games in the Lithuanian league. Tickets cost around 5 euros.

It is believed the brothers signed a one-year contract.

LaMelo, at 6-foot-3, has the shot making the ability to along with his creative ball handling abilities and a good distributor of the ball. But his shot selection is questionable and has struggled to impact the game. LiAngelo is a limited ball handler and defender, and plays strictly below the rim.
