LaMelo Ball will never play college basketball after signing with agent

Adding to the continuing media circus that is the Ball family, LaVar Ball has made a decision to sign not just his son LiAngelo Ball (who was recently removed from UCLA by LaVar) with an agent, but also his youngest son, 16-year-old LaMelo Ball.

They were detained for about a week in China before the case against them was dropped, with President Donald Trump saying he spoke on behalf of the players to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"LiAngelo could probably play third division in Spain, France or Germany", an National Basketball Association scout told Yahoo Sports. Ball said the entire family came to an agreement "that was the best thing for him". Sources told ESPN that several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest.

Lavar Ball recently pulled LiAngelo Ball from UCLA after the freshman was suspended from play indefinitely following a shoplifting incident during UCLA basketball's trip to China.

Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland, and France are in Pot 1, meaning they are the highest-ranked teams. We've got to get that period of training and recovery and freshness right".

The 16-year-old guard and his older brother LiAngelo signed with Harrison Gaines, who also represents the eldest Ball brother, Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, LaVar said. Lonzo Ball has always been the best prospect of the three brothers, and UCLA received a stellar freshman year from him.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", Ball said.

LiAngelo doesn't project out to be an National Basketball Association player, and while LaMelo is a top recruit, he's also 16 years old and years away from possible draft eligibility. "Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lane".

The back-and-forth continued, and Trump eventually tweeted that he "should have left them in jail", referring to the players.
