LaVar Ball reportedly yanking LiAngelo, LaMelo from Lithuanian league

LaVar Ball has decided his sons have had enough of the frigid life in Lithuania.

LiAngelo, 19, and LaMelo Ball, 16, are being pulled from BC Vytautas after just three months with the team, according to Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas.

"We're not going to waste our time no more," LaVar said. 

According to the patriarch, LiAngelo's injured ankle, coupled with LaMelo getting no playing time, were the deciding factors. The Balls will be leaving Lithuania Sunday or Monday.

LaVar also said the people of Prienai and the organization itself was great, but that he did not get along with the coach. Because of this, LaMelo won't be returning to play for the team.

“You really ask me this? Coach ruined everything and he’ll have to pay the price that Melo is not coming back,” he said.

LaVar's decision came after Vytautas announced LiAngelo and LaMelo wouldn't play in Wednesday's game against Siauliai due to injuries.

For now, LiAngelo will prepare for the upcoming NBA draft after his agent submitted the paperwork.
