LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo Ball, declared for the National Basketball Association draft on Tuesday just hours before putting up a monster stat line in Lithuania. The move comes as little surprise as this has always been the path LaVar Ball scripted for his middle son after he left the UCLA program to play in Lithuania with his younger brother, LaMelo.
LiAngelo Ball declared for the 2018 National Basketball Association draft Tuesday, according to Ball's agent, Harrison Gaines, per Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.
'Strong signal to Kremlin' as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and 26 countries expel Russian diplomats
All in all, on Monday, about 100 Russian diplomats were expelled from 16 European countries, as well as US, Canada and Australia. Dublin said it will expel one Russian diplomat, while Chisinau announced it had asked three diplomats to leave the country.
Roach averaged 12.3 points and 3.7 rebounds this season and often guarded the opponent's best perimeter player. None of the players that Ball's team beat are professionals. If continues to have good showings against teams, even if they are inferior, it would not make sense for people to continue completely ignoring him.
Per Charania, LiAngelo, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward, is averaging 15.7 points and 2.9 rebounds and is shooting 45 per cent from 3-point range in nine games for Vytautas Prienu. In December 2016, LiAngelo had a 72-point performance for Chino Hills, and in February LaMelo had a 92-point game. As the UCLA basketball team went on a promotional trip to China, Gelo and two of his teammates were arrested for shoplifting, which garnered worldwide headlines. Just today (March 27), he scored 72 points in a BBB challenge game which is not associated with the LKL (Lietuvos Krepsinio Lyga) as it's main objective is to develop Gelo and Melo as basketball players against youth teams.
"He's going to be taken care of either way", LaVar Ball said of LiAngelo Ball.
