On Monday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski announced that both LiAngelo and LaMelo are in serious discussions to sign with the Lithuanian pro basketball club Prienu Vytautas.

It appeared all but inevitable that LiAngelo Ball's college career was coming to an end, and that was confirmed when he signed with the same agent that represents his older brother, Lonzo Ball.

The Prienai-Birstonas Vytautas club, which plays in the Lithuanian league, said in a statement that the brothers will report to the club "in early January".

LiAngelo and LaMelo were both pulled out of their respective schools by their father, LaVar Ball.

With the past few weeks, LaVar Ball has taken both LaMelo Ball and LiAngelo Ball out of school to prepare both of them for the National Basketball Association draft after clashing with head coaches at Chino Hills High School and UCLA. The team has discussed a role of 20-to-25 minutes a game apiece in the Baltic League, a source told ESPN.

Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (FOX) Just Reaches 52-Week High?
One analyst has rated the stock with a sell rating, five have given a hold rating and six have issued a buy rating to the company. Wellington Management Group LLP grew its position in shares of Twenty-First Century Fox by 12.3% during the 1st quarter.

The outlet adds that agent Harrison Gaines fielded a number of global deals for the brothers, but the signing with Vytautas Prienai offered the most potential for the players to find minutes. Even so, his shot selection is questionable and he has struggled to impact winning.

The team has no general manager and doesn't practice regularly due to the poor financial situation.

The club plays in a 1,700-seat arena; 500 of those seats are reserved for team sponsors and their friends.

The coach's other son, Domantas, also played for the team for four years, but he left this season to sign in the French fourth division. LaMelo scored 92 in a game in February and LiAngelo had a 72-point performance last December.

Valanciunas - the 5th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft - is a Lithuanian legend. he won the LKL Lithuanian league championship in 2010 and is a 3-time Lithuanian Basketball Player of the Year.
