LaVar Ball announced on Thursday morning that his two youngest sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, will be signing with their older brother Lonzo's agent, Harrison Gaines. Lavar Ball said he is not concerned with the money, but wants his sons to be playing basketball again - on the same team and on the court at the same time. Nevertheless, the decision to keep trying to harp on this has become a staple in Ball's effort to keep his "Big Baller Brand" relevant while his two younger sons try to get signed to play overseas.
LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo, withdrew from UCLA earlier this week, about a month fter he and two teammates caused an global stir by getting arrested on shoplifting charges during a team trip to China. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".
LaVar pulled LaMelo from Chino Hills High this year after squabbling with the high school's head coach and administration.
"One day after he abruptly removed his middle son from UCLA, LaVar Ball began his quest to prepare LiAngelo for next year's National Basketball Association draft".More news: Garcia Zarate found not guilty in Steinle murder case
LaVar told ESPN, "I don't know the deals and who is offering what". "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested".
Trump publicly questioned whether the players would thank him for his help in their release, tweeting, "Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?"
The back-and-forth continued, and Trump eventually tweeted that he "should have left them in jail", referring to the players.
