Harrison Gaines, who represents Lonzo, will take on his two brothers, as well.

LiAngelo, 19, was a freshman at UCLA, but was busted for shoplifting in China. LaVar has proclaimed that LiAngelo will enter the 2018 NBA Draft, so transferring to another school for next season was not an option.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball told Goodman.

"Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lane", he said.

Further forgoing their college eligibility, LaVar said that both LiAngelo and LaMelo have signed with agent Harrison Gaines, with sources telling ESPN that the Ball sons already have interest from several teams in Asia and Europe.

LaMelo was pulled from Chino Hills High School - the school where all three Ball brothers attended - with plans of being homeschooled until he attended UCLA.

LaVar Ball's apparel company Big Baller Brand tweeted an animation of LaVar dunking on US President Donald Trump.

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.

Vitale also said that LiAngelo Ball has no chance of playing in the National Basketball Association. LiAngelo received an indefinite suspension after authorities caught him and two UCLA teammates shoplifting during the school's overseas trip to China. "I just need to get them playing again". As for LiAngelo, that's no longer the case.

He didn't say the small stuff, but thrived on major hyperboles - he could beat Michael Jordan, his oldest son could lift a struggling franchise and become the face of the National Basketball Association and all three sons would spend one year at UCLA before becoming NBA players - something that has never happened before.
