Ball Brothers turn pro, sign with Lithuanian team

The dynamic duo of LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball will not be held off the basketball court.

The Ball Brothers turned professional on Monday, signing one-year contracts Vytautas Prienai of Lithuania. 

Per The Vertical:

LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball have turned pro, agreeing to one-year contracts with Vytautas Prienai in the first-division Lithuanian league, sources told Yahoo Sports.

LaMelo, 16, and LiAngelo Ball, 19, agreed to deals with Vytautas that will allow the two prospects to start their careers in a competitive professional league with a history of producing NBA players and focus on development. Both will report to the team in early January, sources told Yahoo Sports. LaMelo and LiAngelo — the younger brothers of Los Angeles Lakers starting point guard Lonzo Ball — began the process of exploring international deals last week.

According to reports, the team is hoping the Ball Brothers, as well as their father LaVar, will bring much needed publicity to a 'fledgling' organization.
