'I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time.

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said in an interview with ESPN.

LaMelo and LiAngelo hired agent Harrison Gaines, officially ending their NCAA eligibility.

LiAngelo Ball was yanked out of UCLA on Monday because his dad was upset over the disciplinary actions taken by the school after LiAngelo and two other teammates were arrested for shoplifting in China in October.

While playing professional basketball at high school age seems preposterous in the United States, it actually isn't all that uncommon overseas.

'He's not going to play college basketball, ' LaVar told ESPN of LaMelo.

LiAngelo, 19, was a freshman at UCLA, but was busted for shoplifting in China. That information comes from LaVar Ball.

LaMelo Ball withdrew from Chino Hills (Calif.) High early in his junior season.

Feeling impatient, LaVar and LiAngelo announced the latter's intention to pull out of the school on Tuesday so he can focus on preparing for the 2018 NBA Draft.

"Mr. Ball was the only youngster of the three to steal from three stores (in China)", Vitale said.

On Thursday, though, LaVar put that dilemma to rest.

The family is looking for a team willing to sign both brothers, and according to a person not authorized to speak publicly, they've received interest from teams in Europe and Asia. As a former middle school basketball coach, I've witness firsthand how parents think little Johnny or Susan are the next great Olympians and anyone who tells them otherwise is insane and doesn't know what they're talking about.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what", Ball told ESPN.
