LiAngelo Ball Declares for 2018 NBA Draft; Played with LaMelo Overseas

Adjust Comment Print

Ball, the 19-year-old brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, has been playing professionally in Lithuania after leaving UCLA. While he is still young and is only 20 years old, his stats are a far cry from saying "superstar".

Lonzo Ball's loud mouth father, LaVar, has stated multiple times that all of his three kids are going to be on the Lakers. Hitting on one of those late first round picks or second round picks can be the saving grace for a front office, keeping them in power for years, while a big miss can lead to organizational changes, which is why they put so much work into the pre-draft process.

The company listed assets in the range of $500 million to $1 billion and liabilities in the range of $500 million to $1 billion. A likely buyer for Remington is someone who invests family money and does not need to answer to investors, the partner said.

The three UCLA freshmen were held for several days at the team hotel before being released back to the United States.

Ball starred at Chino Hills High in California alongside LaMelo and Lonzo. LiAngelo left the program after he was arrested for shoplifting in China and was suspended indefinitely. 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. Projecting how 19, 20, and 21-year-olds will react to a new style of play, new level of competition, and the need to develop into something more than what they now are. He puts up numbers in the G-League for an entire year, and I'd start to believe that there might be major National Basketball Association paychecks in his future. That won't stop a G League team from picking him up, though; there's still hope for him. Gelo will also work out privately with multiple National Basketball Association teams.
