Share

LaVar Ball announced Wednesday his sons, LiAngelo Ball and LaMelo Ball, will end their stints with BC Prienai ahead of schedule.

Lithuanian basketball journalist Donatas Urbonas was the first to report the Ball brothers' exit from the team.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball are set to leave Lithuania next week.

What's next for the Ball brothers?

"We're not going to waste our time no more". LiAngelo hopes to join his older brother Lonzo in the National Basketball Association but isn't a lock to be selected on Draft Day. LaMelo, 16, is still perfecting his craft and has a ways to go under the CBA's current construction to be eligible for the draft.

LaMelo averaged just 12 minutes per game in LKL play, scoring 6.5 points on a dismal 26.8 percent shooting.

No word yet to what LaVar has plans for the youngest Ball son. "We understand how they helped us, but they don't", Seskus told Lithuanian outlet 15min.let. It's sad they didn't understand what we gave them.

Lithuania is about to say goodbye to the traveling road show that is the Ball family. In the most recent episode, Ball told the camera that with just two months left in the season, "Time is ticking, and everybody's got to be in. Coach ruined everything and he'll have to pay the price that Melo is not coming back", he said.

"I just didn't get along with the coach".
