The 20-year-old Ball has filed his early-entry paperwork and is reportedly expected to participate in the Pro Basketball Combine at IMG Academy in May in front of NBA executives.
LaVar Ball pulled both LiAngelo out of UCLA, as well as his younger brother LaMelo out of high school to pursue a professional career for them both overseas. The two signed with an agent shortly after and joined Lithuanian club BC Vytautas.
The 6-foot-5 guard is averaging 15.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and shooting 45 percent on 3’s over nine games in the Lithuanian league, which may sway some NBA GM’s to take a chance on LaVar’s son, despite his off-court issues and flamboyant family members.
