The Ball family is in Philadelphia, where the Lakers will play the 76ers on Thursday night.

The idea of signing both the less-heralded LiAngelo and LaMelo could intrigue a team either in Europe or China, given that LaMelo is only high school age and is the 17th-ranked prospect in the U.S.in the 2019 Rivals 150.

If LiAngelo does not play overseas he could play in the NBA's developmental league, the G-League, and enter into the 2018 NBA Draft since he is now 19.

LaVar Ball said he doesn't know what overseas teams are interested in his sons. 'I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time. Lonzo, for instance, was highly recruited before starring at UCLA and LaMelo made a name for himself by scoring 92 points in a high school game last season before being pulled out of Chino Hills High School by LaVar earlier this year. His ability to play at UCLA was already in question due to his signature shoes, which might have violated the NCAA's policy on amateurism. He was in China in November with his father opening pop-up shops in Shanghai and Hong Kong, selling the family's BBB merchandise. LaVar was instead hoping to home-school the high-scoring guard in preparation for the next level.

In analysts report issued to clients on today, Peel Hunt reaffirmed their Buy rating on Headlam Group PLC (LON:HEAD)'s stock. Los Angeles Mgmt And Equity invested 0.01% of its portfolio in ADTRAN, Inc. (NYSE:LLL) or 4,783 shares. (NASDAQ:ADTN).

But LiAngelo won't be returning to college basketball and LaMelo won't ever get there in the first place.

It's nearly certainly all right with the Bruins.

"If they are over there, I wish them the best", Lonzo Ball said. "I'm not going to let UCLA take the fire out of my boy by not letting him play for two months". LaVar plans on travelling with the boys wherever they end up, and says two of their uncles will also be taking the trip and keeping an eye on them as well.
