LaMelo, LiAngelo Sign With Lonzo’s Agent; No Longer Eligible For NCAA
If there was any doubt about the intentions of LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball after they were taken out of school, it was all made clear when they signed with agent Harrison Gaines, who is also Lonzo Ball’s agent, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
LaMelo, who is 16-years-old, will no longer be eligible to play in the NCAA despite verbally committing to the UCLA Bruins.
“He’s not going to play college basketball,” Ball said.
The plan for now is for both to play on the same team overseas.
“I don’t care about the money,” LaVar Ball said on Thursday morning. “I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time. The priority is for the boys to play on the same team.”
