LaMelo Ball signs with agent, ending UCLA commitment

LaMelo Ball signs with agent, ending UCLA commitment

"I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time".

Vitale tweeted: "I told Steve Alford today I don't know if he realizes it but Santa Claus came early for the @UCLAmbb team with LaVar Ball having his son LiAngelo packing his bags / can u just imagine LaVar's antics when his son would not get PT?"

The middle son, LiAngelo, was involved in a highly publicized incident in China that resulted in the arrest of three UCLA players for theft from a handful of high-end stores during the UCLA men's basketball team's trip overseas for a game.

LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo, withdrew from UCLA earlier this week, about a month after he and two teammates caused an global stir by getting arrested on shoplifting charges during a team trip to China.

While playing professional basketball at high school age seems preposterous in the United States, it actually isn't all that uncommon overseas.

Pearl Harbor attack remembered, reflected upon
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed today, Thursday, December 7, 2017, as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day in Minnesota. Kasich's resolution noted that more than 3,500 Americans were killed or wounded as a result of the attack.

Ball's father, LaVar, told the Los Angeles Times that UCLA's suspension for the shoplifting charger was too stringent.

The Ball family is in Philadelphia, where the Lakers will play the 76ers on Thursday night. Harrison Gaines, who represents Lonzo, will take on his two brothers, as well. LaVar Ball is all about teaching his kids, 'if you don't get your way, quit. LaVar has proclaimed that LiAngelo will enter the 2018 NBA Draft, so transferring to another school for next season was not an option.

Meanwhile, Bruins Coach Steve Alford said he has yet to speak with the Balls since LiAngelo left the program earlier this week.

According to Goodman, several teams in Europe and Asia (presumably not China) have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", LaVar Ball said.
