LiAngelo to play for JBA League

LiAngelo Ball’s next step is sort of close to his Lakers dream

All three Ball brothers will be able to say they played professional basketball for a team based in Los Angeles very soon.

Unfortunately, it's not Lonzo, it's not the Los Angeles Lakers and it's not in the National Basketball Association.

The next move of LiAngelo Ball's basketball career will be following in his younger brother's footsteps.

After his Lakers workout, the team signified it had no interest in drafting LiAngelo or signing the 19-year-old to play for their G League team, the South Bay Lakers, according to a report from USA Today Sports. "That's all I want to do, win".

The Ball family held out hope LiAngelo would be drafted in the second round of this year's NBA Draft and when that didn't happen, many believed he'd eventually join the JBA.

"I think it prepared me a little better as far as going against grown men that care about their job every day", LiAngelo said. His younger brother LaMelo added, "It's all business".

After working out with a number of NBA teams ahead of the 2018 NBA draft, LiAngelo Ball has found a home - in the Junior Ball Association. How LiAngelo's affiliation with the Ballers will help turn LaVar's vision into reality is unclear at this point.
