LaVar: Sons LiAngelo, LaMelo sign with agent

The drama between Ball and Trump dates back to last month when Ball's son, LiAngelo Ball, and two other UCLA basketball players were arrested in China after they were caught shoplifting. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time".

The President received the thanks of the players at a news conference later that day, where they also apologized for their behavior. The original plan was for him to be homeschooled, but LiAngelo's situation has changed things. LaVar Ball reportedly believed that the suspension, which kept Ball out of UCLA's first eight games of the season and counting, was unfair because the charges were dropped by the Chinese government after two weeks.

LaVar pulled LaMelo from Chino Hills High this year after squabbling with the high school's head coach and administration.

He definitively added about LaMelo: "He's not going to play college basketball".

The reports suggests several teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers, though it's unclear what the offers are. The biggest baller in America has chose to tweet out an animation involving himself and the President of the United States, and it appears that Ball wants to keep this beef going for a while. When LaVar Ball publicly downplayed Trump's role in bringing the incident to a close, Trump wrote on Twitter that he "should have left them in jail".

Lonzo Ball said he thinks his brother LiAngelo's decision to leave UCLA "is a good decision".
