Adding to the continuing media circus that is the Ball family, LaVar Ball has chose 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. Nevertheless, the decision to keep trying to harp on this has become a staple in Ball's effort to keep his "Big Baller Brand" relevant while his two younger sons try to get signed to play overseas. LaVar Ball said Gaines has been dealing with various overseas clubs about LiAngelo and LaMelo.

LaMelo was pulled from Chino Hills High School - the school where all three Ball brothers attended - with plans of being homeschooled until he attended UCLA.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said in an interview with ESPN.

The reports suggests several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers, though it's unclear what the offers are. "If they are over there, I wish them the best", Ball said.


LaVar Ball told Jeff Goodman that he'll deputize a trio of Ball uncles to accompany the brothers wherever they go and help prepare them for an National Basketball Association future. "Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lane".

President Trump and talk-show favorite/shoe salesman LaVar Ball engaged in a Twitter spat last month after Trump helped Ball's son LiAngelo leave China early after he had been held on suspicion of shoplifting.

A professional team in Lithuania has offered the Ball Brothers a job, but not the one they are looking for.
