Ball's contentious father, LaVar Ball, reportedly pulled LiAngelo Ball from the program after an indefinite suspension from the school.

LiAngelo Ball, the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, made a case on Tuesday for why it was a good idea to declare for the NBA Draft.

An ESPN mock draft has Holiday going 23rd overall to the Lakers, who selected former Bruin Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick in the draft previous year.

He now plays for Lithuanian first-division club BC Priena but he's expected to return stateside in May in order to work out for NBA teams and participate in the Pro Basketball Combine at IMG Academy.

LiAngelo Ball was pegged as the least talented among his two brothers.


Lonzo Ball could be joined by his brother, LiAngelo Ball, if an National Basketball Association team decides to draft the 19-year-old this June.

LiAngelo Ball put up a whopping 72 points for his Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas in a 159-115 win.

Since joining Vytautas, LiAngelo is averaging a league-leading 15.7 points and 2.9 rebounds. None of the players that Ball's team beat are professionals.

Porter, Jr. played just minutes in his collegiate debut against Iowa State before coming out with what would later be diagnosed as a back injury requiring surgery. Said LiAngelo, according to Ball Is Life.

LaVar said he didn't expect LiAngelo to make it to the National Basketball Association, but is "going to be taken care of either way", financially. He went to Chino Hills High School, where he averaged 30.3 points a game on the varsity team in his four years there.
