If there was any doubt about the intentions of LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball after they were taken out of school, it was all made clear when they signed with agent Harrison Gaines, who is also Lonzo Ball's agent, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
However, the National Basketball Association has what is known as the 'one-and-done rule, ' requiring players to be at least one year removed from high school or at least 19 years of age before entering the league, which is why the pair are looking to sign outside the United States. The plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas.

Among the overseas professional clubs that a representative for the Ball family approached about signing 19-year-old LiAngelo and his 16-year-old brother LaMelo is Lietkabelis of the Lithuanian Basketball League, general manager Mantas Ignatavičius confirmed Tuesday to Yahoo Sports.
"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said in an interview with ESPN. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time". Along with fellow freshman Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, LiAngelo admittedly stole designer sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, where the team was staying ahead of their season opener against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on November 10. He initially was targeted to play at UCLA in two years by his father, but that plan has now changed.
"There will be three people with them all the time", Ball said.

The boys' father said several teams in Asia and Europe have expressed interest.
LaMelo had already committed to UCLA for the class of 2019, but now that he signed an agent he won't be playing for the Bruins at all. "I'm not going to say I know for a fact he couldn't defend at that level, but he has never had to do it before and his overall athletic profile doesn't bode well in the future".
Ball followed that up, as he does, with a few parting shots at UCLA, "I'm going to make him way better for the draft that UCLA ever could have". "I just need to get them playing again".
