LaVar Ball Announces LiAngelo Ball Is Joining A New Team

LiAngelo Ball gives interview to ESPN.

LiAngelo Ball has signed with a new basketball team. Unfortunately for the Ball family, it's not an NBA team.

LaVar Ball announced this morning that his middle son has signed with the Los Angeles Ballers of the Junior Basketball Association, which was founded by LaVar.

"RELEASE: LiAngelo Ball will play for the Los Angeles Ballers of the JBA League. For quotes and more information, read FULL press release," he announced.

LiAngelo will be making his debut on Thursday.

LiAngelo had been attempting a shot in the NBA and he had multiple pre-draft workouts with teams. However, he went unselected and then was not invited onto any summer league squads.

TMZ Sports caught up with LiAngelo at the airport, asking him about his future, and he said he still believes he'll end up on the Lakers at some point.

"Yeah, I will," LiAngelo told TMZ. "Probably later. I think I will."

For now, LiAngelo will be balling in the JBA.
