LaMelo Ball is apparently down to two options for the 2019-20 basketball season, his father, LaVar Ball, announced this weekend.
The youngest Ball brother, who spent this past season at SPIRE Academy in Ohio, won’t be playing college basketball in 2019-20.
Instead, he’ll be playing overseas.
LaMelo Ball, a five-star recruit, will either be playing in Australia or China.
“It’s going to be in Australia or China, one of ‘em,” LaVar told Yahoo Sports.

LaVar Ball also predicts that his youngest son will be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
That’s not happening, of course, but LaMelo Ball did look good in his debut at the Drew League this weekend.

LaMelo Ball has also been recruited to play in New Zealand, alongside five-star recruit R.J. Hampton, though it’s unclear if league rules will allow that to happen.
