Big Baller Brand Second Son, LiAngelo Ball Declares for NBA Draft

Big Baller Brand Second Son, LiAngelo Ball Declares for NBA Draft

LiAngelo Ball's agent, Harrison Gaines, told Yahoo Sports Tuesday morning, that LiAngelo, 19, had submitted his early entry paperwork to enter the June draft.

Lonzo Ball could be joined by his brother, LiAngelo Ball, if an National Basketball Association team decides to draft the 19-year-old this June.

LiAngelo Ball was pegged as the least talented among his two brothers.

The former UCLA player and brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has certainly proved thus far that he is a pro-caliber player in Europe. He went to Chino Hills High School, where he averaged 30.3 points a game on the varsity team in his four years there. LiAngelo wasn't close to being one of the best players on the UCLA team he would've played on had he not been busted for shoplifting in China. 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 goal is to develop Gelo and Melo as basketball players against youth teams.

Instead of waiting out the suspension, Ball and younger brother LaMelo signed professionally with Lithuanian team Vytautas Prienu, making themselves ineligible to play collegiately in the U.S.

In order to showcase his talents, Gelo will be participating in the NBA Draft Combine from May 16-20 in Chicago, where all draft prospects will be attending with NBA scouts and general managers watching.

LiAngelo is expected to work out for several National Basketball Association teams once he returns to the United States.
