With little to no interest from NBA teams in the draft or summer league, LiAngelo Ball will join his brother LaMelo in the JBA.
The JBA (Junior Basketball Association) is the start-up league recently created by LaVar Ball, LiAngelo's father. LiAngelo will join the Los Angeles Ballers, and is set to make his season debut this Thursday in Ontario, California at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
Below is an excerpt from a release by the JBA:
"If you thought the first round of the JBA League games were exciting, then you have seen nothing yet with round two ... After NBA teams surprisingly passed on LiAngelo Ball, he went to work out and give the teams that passed him a show. After seeing the competitiveness of the JBA and the talent level, LiAngelo made the decision to join the Los Angeles Ballers along with younger brother, LaMelo, and was present for his first practice this past Saturday."
Will you be heading out to Ontario to catch a game?
