Do you want to play in LaVar Ball's new basketball league, the Junior Basketball Association?

Probably not.

If you do, though, and you live in the Pacific Northwest, the opportunity is there. Tryouts are coming.

Ball, who is trying to start his own basketball league that is meant to be an alternative to college basketball, announced some major tryout news on Twitter earlier today. Tryouts are coming to Seattle.

"Calling out Seattle and surrounding cities! The JBA will be in Seattle on April 7th, searching for the Best Ballers to represent the Seattle Team. This will be a closed tryout at Boys & Girls Club of Bellevue. Register online to tryout at http://jbaleauge.com," Ball tweeted. 

Here's the full announcement:

Ball had reportedly been attempting to get some major high school recruits to play in his league instead of going to college. It doesn't look like that's going to happen.

It'll be very interesting to see what kind of players LaVar will be able to sign up.

Stay tuned.
