LaVar: Sons LiAngelo, LaMelo sign with agent

LaMelo is nearing 6-feet-6 and could be as talented as older brother Lonzo, who plays for the Lakers. LiAngelo withdrew from UCLA earlier this week after never playing in a regular season game as a Bruin.

Earlier this week, Lavar Ball had said LaMelo Ball would still play for UCLA, but Thursday morning, he said LaMelo Ball will not play college basketball. He just posted a video of his animated self dunking on an animated Trump who, I must say, looks much skinnier as an emoji.

Ball has signed with an agent and will play overseas, effectively ending his collegiate career, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

LiAngelo Ball and fellow freshmen basketball players Cody Riley and Jalen Hill created an global incident that eventually involved President Donald Trump.

Jordan Peele made quite the splash in polemical social horror with his brilliantly conceived and executed blockbuster Get Out . Simon Kinberg added his thoughts by declaring, " The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life".

LaVar's decision to hire an agent ends any chance of LaMelo (who's now ranked No. 7 nationally in ESPN's class of 2019 high school recruiting rankings) playing college basketball. Lietkabelis coach Arturs Stalbergs subsequently scoffed at the idea in a since-deleted tweet that poked fun at LiAngelo's shoplifting arrest in China last month.

Like his two older brothers, LaMelo was originally committed to UCLA, with the plan being for him to play there for one year before entering the NBA Draft.

LiAngelo was suspended by UCLA after shoplifting during a basketball trip to China, and is no longer attending classes. Because they've retained professional representation, they will not be allowed to play college basketball. Conversely, it would take a $2,500 bet on LiAngelo going undrafted to win only $100 - a significantly more likely scenario.

The announcement came days after LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA, where he had enrolled on a basketball scholarship, due to his dissatisfaction with the school's disciplinary process.
