LiAngelo Ball, LaVar's middle son, to declare for National Basketball Association draft

LiAngelo Ball

LiAngelo Ball will declare for the NBA Draft after averaging a league-leading 15.7 points while playing for Vytautas Prienu in Lithuania.

Ball, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward, has established himself as a pro player this season in Lithuania. Lonzo is averaging just over 10 points, seven assists and seven rebounds a game for the Lakers. When selected by the Lakers, people saw him as the future face of the team, with CEO Magic Johnson, who formerly played for the Lakers saying, "I expect the franchise to retire a #Ball jersey in the future" referring to how he expects Lonzo to be a superstar.

Whereas Lonzo was an elite recruit out of Southern California's Chino Hills High and LaMelo famously scored 92 points in a single high school game, LiAngelo was given just three out of five stars by 247Sports, which ranked the 6ft5 forward as the 226th-rated player in his graduating class.

'Saturday Night Takeaway' cancelled following Ant McPartlin's arrest for 'drink-driving'
The divorce from his wife of 11 years is believed to be costing the star around £ 30 million of his estimated £60 million fortune. ITV added: 'ITV has taken a joint decision with Ant and Dec's team not to broadcast Saturday Night Takeaway this weekend.

That being said, most analysts don't think LiAngelo will be drafted this summer.

LiAngelo Ball began his freshman season at UCLA but left the team after being caught shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in China last December.

Instead of waiting out the suspension, Ball and younger brother LaMelo signed professionally with Lithuanian team Vytautas Prienu, making themselves ineligible to play collegiately in the U.S. The former UCLA Bruin is coming back to the United States. He will also participate in the Combine at IMG Academy (Florida) in May in front of National Basketball Association team executives. He will also attend the Professional Basketball Combine, which will take place on May 22 and 23 in Bradenton, Florida. That won't stop a G League team from picking him up, though; there's still hope for him.
