LiAngelo Ball, 19, and LaMelo Ball, 16, have reportedly agreed to one-year contracts with the Lithuanian club, Vytautas. Rural-based Vytautas has teams in the Lithuanian League and the Baltic League, the latter of which is less competitive.

Then again, it's the Ball family, so maybe making as many headlines as possible is really the only goal. "We are committed to their long-term success and development as professional basketball players".

"We saw [fellow LKL team] Lietkabelis publicizing the fact that they have been approached by an agent representing the Ball brothers and we just got in touch with him and put forward the idea of them playing for Vytautas", Kubilius said.

LaMelo, 16, and LiAngelo Ball, 19, agreed to deals with Vytautas that will allow the two prospects to start their careers in a competitive professional league with a history of producing National Basketball Association players and focus on development.

LaVar has made it his goal for both LaMelo and LiAngelo to follow in Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball's footsteps to the National Basketball Association. He called the move an "experiment", but sounded hopeful that the teenage brothers "are good enough to play here".

Both are expected to report to the club in January, according to reports. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

Some have been dragging LaVar and dissing the team choice.

Others were happy for the Ball brothers and looked at the deal positively.
