Summary:

As the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers’ standout rookie and 2017 2nd overall pick, Lonzo Ball, LiAngelo Ball had also enrolled at UCLA. ​

But then, he was arrested in a shoplifting incident in China, which resulted in him being suspended indefinitely.  He later left school, and he has since signed with Vytautas Prienu, as he will be able to play in Lithuania’s top league when he gets there.

​Recently, LiAngelo Ball declared to be in the 2018 NBA Draft.  While he is considered to be a longshot to be drafted, he is playing fairly well in the LKL, as he may profile into a shooter role at the next level.​
