LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball 'in serious discussions' to sign with Lithuanian team

LaMelo was supposed to be a junior this season at Chino Hills High School, but his father pulled him out of school with the intent of home schooling him.

Vytautas plays in the Lithuanian (LKL) league, but it is unlikely the Ball brothers would see significant playing time in that league.

The Ball brothers' European vacation looks set to start soon if reports are to be believed. LiAngelo, 19, began the season at UCLA, but withdrew from school last week amid an indefinite suspension.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball are in serious discussions to sign professional basketball contracts with Lithuanian club Prienu Vytautas, sources told ESPN. LaVar said he would have both LiAngelo and LaMelo bypass college basketball and planned to search out pro jobs overseas. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

This video from October showed Seskus telling his team to leave the court with just under three minutes remaining in a tie game.

"It was critical to find a situation in a competitive league that works with both of their short- and long-term goals", Gaines told the website.

The younger brother, a talented 6-foot-3 point guard, was rated five stars by all major recruiting outlets and is viewed as a likely first-round pick in the 2020 draft.

LaVar Ball has said that his ultimate goal is to see LiAngelo and LaMelo play in the National Basketball Association, specifically on the Lakers with their older brother Lonzo, who Los Angeles selected out of UCLA with the No. 2 pick in June's draft. Lithuania in January probably isn't as nice as UCLA, but hey, at least the two brothers will make a tiny amount of money playing front of hundreds of fans.
