LiAngelo and LaMelo Sign One-Year Deals with Lithuanian Team

Los Angeles Lakers’ rookie Lonzo Ball’s younger brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo are sign one-year-deals with Lituanian League team Vytautas Prienai.

Just under a week after the boys decided to end their amateur career and sign with their brother’s agent Harrison Gaines, the duo has secured a contract.

Yahoo! insider Shams Charania:

LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball have turned pro, agreeing to one-year contracts with Vytautas Prienai in the first-division Lithuanian league, sources told Yahoo Sports.

LaMelo, 16, and LiAngelo Ball, 19, agreed to deals with Vytautas that will allow the two prospects to start their careers in a competitive professional league with a history of producing NBA players and focus on development. Both will report to the team in early January, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Over the past week, Harrison Gaines, the representative for LaMelo and LiAngelo, fielded multiple offers and worked to finalize the finer details of a unique contract situation. For LaMelo and LiAngelo, the opportunity to play meaningful minutes in each potential level of play for Vytautas was as important as the flexibility of their one-year agreements.

“We engaged in serious talks with several teams, and Vytautas made the most sense as LaMelo and LiAngelo work to develop as professionals and set a foundation for their careers,” Gaines said. “It was critical to find a situation in a competitive league that works with both of their short- and long-term goals.”
