LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have both signed with an agent and will find a team to play for overseas, LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday.

Ball has signed with an agent and will play overseas, effectively ending his collegiate career, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

"It's very hard for me to see him having a longterm pathway to success where he could make more money in basketball than he could have as a UCLA graduate", said NBA draft expert Sam Vecenie.

LiAngelo and the other two freshmen were serving an indefinite suspension for the scandal, but LaVar told ESPN he was frustrated by the school's inability to reach a swift resolution.

LaMelo is nearing 6-feet-6 and could be as talented as older brother Lonzo, who plays for the Lakers.

Ball said he will likely spend time wherever his two youngest sons wind up playing, and he also intends to have their uncles go over and help. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team". "I'm not going to say I know for a fact he couldn't defend at that level, but he has never had to do it before and his overall athletic profile doesn't bode well in the future". That information comes from LaVar Ball. "I just need to get them playing again".

LiAngelo was suspended by UCLA after shoplifting during a basketball trip to China, and is no longer attending classes.

If LiAngelo does not play overseas he could play in the NBA's developmental league, the G-League, and enter into the 2018 NBA Draft since he is now 19.

"We have an opening at the security staff since they have an experience in this field", Stalbergs wrote".

"There will be three people with them all the time", Ball said.
