Report: Ball brothers turn pro, sign with Lithuanian team

Today on Tim and Sid, Faizal Khamisa and Sid Seixeiro banter about the Twitter war between Donald Trump and LaVar Ball.

The Ball Family Circus will make a stop in Lithuania.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have signed with Lithuanian club Prienu Vytautas, according to a report from The Vertical’s Shams Charania.

The contracts are both one-year deals and the brothers will report to the team in early January.

Vytautas, also known as BC Prienai, plays in the Lithuanian Basketball League domestically and also competes in the Baltic Basketball League every year.

LiAngelo, 19, pulled out of UCLA earlier this month without ever playing a game for the Bruins. He was arrested in a shoplifting scandal while UCLA was making a stop for a game in China, prompting the school to issue a suspension.

LaMelo, 16, verbally committed to UCLA when he was 13 years old.

LiAngelo and LaMelo are brothers of Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft. Their father, LaVar, is one of the most outspoken parents in sports history.
