LiAngelo Ball is declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft. Yahoo! Sports first reported the news this morning.
The middle son of LaVar Ball is expected to return to the United States soon. He'll work out for several NBA teams.
"LiAngelo Ball is expected to work out for several NBA teams when he returns from playing for Vytautas and will participate in the Pro Basketball Combine at IMG Academy (Florida) in May in front of team executives. As NBA teams increasingly value 3-point shooting and defending wings, Ball will have an opportunity to prove to teams that he is a potential draft pick.
Ball, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward, has established himself as a pro player this season in Lithuania. He’s averaging a league-leading 15.7 points and 2.9 rebounds and is shooting 45 percent from 3-point range in nine first-division Lithuanian league games. Ball has shown a two-way ability because of his size, strength and 3-point shooting, and has already emerged as one of the team leaders and positive voices for Vytautas," Yahoo! Sports reported.
The former three-star recruit is not believed to be a major NBA Draft prospect. Where could he be picked?
LiAngelo Ball NBA Draft projections
LiAngelo Ball is not expected to be drafted. It would come as a major surprise if any of the NBA teams take a shot on him in the draft.
However, it is possible that he ends up getting signed for the summer league and/or invited to training camp.
LiAngelo Ball is likely a potential G League player. If he excels in the G League, he could get called up to an NBA team and signed to a 10-day contract.
The 2018 NBA Draft is set to take place on June 21.
