LaMelo Ball will never play college basketball after signing with agent

Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com passed along comments from the Ball family patriarch, who said the main focus is getting the Ball brothers on the same roster, not the financial details of their contracts.

"I don't care about the money", father LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday morning.

LiAngelo and the other two freshmen were serving an indefinite suspension for the scandal, but LaVar told ESPN he was frustrated by the school's inability to reach a swift resolution.

"One day after he abruptly removed his middle son from UCLA, LaVar Ball began his quest to prepare LiAngelo for next year's National Basketball Association draft".

LaVar said he does not know where the two brothers will land, but there has been interest. LiAngelo would likely have been somewhere at the end of UCLA's rotation had he played this season - he's a stocky, 6-foot-5 shooter whose best position may be as a stretch four - while LaMelo is a young 16-year old that is still growing into his body.

The agent, Harrison Gaines, has reportedly been talking to teams in Europe and Asia about both of the younger Ball brothers playing on a team together overseas. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested". For example, 2017 draftee Frank Ntilikina played professionally for three years before being drafted as a 19-year-old, and potential 2018 top pick Luka Doncic is in the midst of his fourth professional season at age 18.

LiAngelo was suspended by UCLA after shoplifting during a basketball trip to China, and is no longer attending classes.

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