LiAngelo Ball Is Headed To The NBA Draft


LiAngelo Ball is heading to the NBA Draft.

The 19-year-old brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has reportedly submitted his draft paperwork after playing with Vytautas Prienu in Lithuania for the past few months.

According to Yahoo! Sports, LiAngelo appears to have boosted his NBA value with a respectable stint in Lithuania:

Ball, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward, has established himself as a pro player this season in Lithuania. He’s averaging a league-leading 15.7 points and 2.9 rebounds and is shooting 45 percent from 3-point range in nine first-division Lithuanian league games. Ball has shown a two-way ability because of his size, strength and 3-point shooting, and has already emerged as one of the team leaders and positive voices for Vytautas.

LaVar had previously stated that all three of his sons — Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo — would play for Lakers. 

LaMelo still has another couple years until he will be NBA eligible, but it will be interesting to see where LiAngelo ends up this summer.
