LaVar Ball, the father of LaMelo and the now-infamous UCLA basketball rookie LiAngelo Ball, may be about to send his two boys abroad.

Last week, LaVar told ESPN that his sons would play pro basketball overseas but did not disclose a location.

We were pretty sure it would be in this solar system though.

Now, it looks like LaVar may be sending his boys to Lithuania, according to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, who revealed that the Balls are in “serious discussions” with Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas.

Jonathan Givony noted that the Balls won’t skip right to MVP status though.

In fact, there’s a chance the brothers may not even get paid for play time.

I’m right there with Givony on that last thought. Although a lot of people were starting to doubt LiAngelo’s talent, LaMelo recently got yanked from Chino Hills High School to be homeschooled and focus more on his game. He’s ranked #15 across the nation in his prospect class.

Perhaps this apartment is on their house hunting list?
