LiAngelo Ball declares for 2018 National Basketball Association draft

LiAngelo Ball declares for 2018 National Basketball Association draft

The second of the three Ball brothers initially followed Lonzo to UCLA but was suspended for the season after admittedly stealing sunglasses along with two teammates at an upscale Chinese mall ahead of the Bruins' season opener in Shanghai on November 10. Ball, 19, has submitted the required paperwork to enter the draft as a so-called "early-entry" player. LaVar Ball eventually pulled his son from UCLA and eventually placed on a Lithuanian professional team, Vytautas Prienu, with his younger brother, LaMelo, whom LaVar pulled from high school.

LiAngelo Ball hopes to be the second of the Ball brothers to join the National Basketball Association.

The Missouri freshman will declare for the NBA Draft, where he is expected to be a top-five pick, it was announced Monday.

Holiday was one of the Pac-12's best players this season, posting 20.3 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game and 5.8 assists per game.

But will a team select him? - Where he averaged a league-leading 15.7 points and 2.9 rebounds and is shooting 45 percent a game from 3-point range.

That being said, most analysts don't think LiAngelo will be drafted this summer.

With the 72 points, LiAngelo matched his career-high effort as a senior at Chino Hills (Calif.). As the UCLA basketball team went on a promotional trip to China, Gelo and two of his teammates were arrested for shoplifting, which garnered global headlines.

LaVar said he didn't expect LiAngelo to make it to the National Basketball Association, but is "going to be taken care of either way", financially.
