LiAngelo and LaMelo each signed one-year deals with Lithuanian club Prienu Vytautas on Monday, according to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony.

LaMelo was previously committed to UCLA like LiAngelo and their older brother, Lonzo Ball, who was the No. 2 overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft.

LaMelo Ball had already been pulled from high school by his father for basketball training at home.

LiAngelo left UCLA this month after being suspended from the team for shoplifting while in China. LiAngelo and LaMelo are scheduled to land in Lithuania on January 4 and play their first Baltic League on January 9, so the Hurricanes coach isn't saying they will be back in the United States within the next three weeks.

As for Prienai itself, it's a 10,000-person town on the Neman River in southern Lithuania. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team".

The outlet adds that agent Harrison Gaines fielded a number of global deals for the brothers, but the signing with Vytautas Prienai offered the most potential for the players to find minutes.

The club plays in a 1,700-seat arena; 500 of those seats are reserved for team sponsors and their friends. The game was abandoned with 3 minutes to go at 65-65 after the coach was ejected due to some questionable calls. Tickets cost around 5 euros. LiAngelo and LaMelo are starting their respective paths together, but the odds of success appear to be stacked against them.

Lithuania is one of the world's biggest basketball hotbeds per capita, and a great deal of curiosity and excitement flowed through the basketball community. LaMelo's erratic style of play could well shock coaches and players alike in the Baltic League.
