LiAngelo Ball will sign NBA G League contract soon

NBA, LiAngelo Ball

LiAngelo Ball has been sent a contract from the NBA G League and he is expected to sign it soon, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

LiAngelo is the younger brother of New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball. He’s been practicing with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s G League affiliate this season:

LiAngelo Ball went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft. He didn’t play a single regular season game at UCLA, though he did play in the preseason.

LiAngelo Ball’s problems at UCLA started with a trip to China with the team during which he and three teammates were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting. UCLA responded to the incident by suspending LiAngelo and the two other players who were arrested on an indefinite basis.

LaVar Ball once said LiAngelo, Lonzo and LaMelo would all be on the same NBA team one day. LaMelo is projected to be one of the top picks in the 2020 NBA Draft, while Lonzo is thriving in his new home with the Pelicans. It would be a cool story to see LiAngelo get a chance in the NBA after everything that happened to him at UCLA.
