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

Ball, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward, has established himself as a pro player this season in Lithuania.

Ball averaged 15.7 points in nine games with Vytautas, but most experts agree he faces an uphill battle to be one of the players selected in the two rounds of the National Basketball Association draft in June.

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. As the UCLA basketball team went on a promotional trip to China, Gelo and two of his teammates were arrested for shoplifting, which garnered worldwide headlines. Said LiAngelo, according to Ball Is Life.


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. Considering the decision, teams may not draft him because of his inexperience and possible distractions from his father.

Out of the three Ball brothers, LiAngelo was looked at as the kid who wouldn't make it to the National Basketball Association, despite his talent getting him accepted into UCLA. Now, he has been surprisingly better than people thought he would be when he first made the hop over to pro ball in Lithuania. His youngest brother LaMelo Ball, 16, is a five-star recruit who previously was slated to join UCLA. Ball has shown a two-way ability because of his size, strength and 3-point shooting, and has already emerged as one of the team leaders and positive voices for Vytautas.
