On Monday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski announced that both LiAngelo and LaMelo are in serious discussions to sign with the Lithuanian pro basketball club Prienu Vytautas. Though LaMelo was committed to UCLA, LaVar did not seem concerned about preserving his youngest son's amateur status anyhow, which made it potentially unlikely for him to eventually have a college career.

"Our club is excited for the arrival of LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball", Vytautas sports director Vilius Vaitkevicius said about the Ball signings, according to Yahoo Sports.

The Ball brothers have agreed to a one-year deal with Lithuanian team Vytautas Prienai, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

The outlet adds that agent Harrison Gaines fielded a number of worldwide deals for the brothers, but the signing with Vytautas Prienai offered the most potential for the players to find minutes.

LaMelo, meanwhile, was pulled out of high school by his father in October. Vytautus also plays in the lesser competitive Baltic League, where the teenagers could see more playing time.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar told ESPN last week.

LiAngelo did not appear in a game for the Bruins this season before leaving school.

LaMelo Ball had already been pulled from high school by his father for basketball training at home.

The team is 4-1 in the Baltic League, its lone loss coming on a forfeiture. But his shot selection is questionable and has struggled to impact the game.

The team has no general manager and doesn't practice regularly due to the poor financial situation. He believes that all three of sons will eventually play for their hometown team, L.A. Lakers.
