LiAngelo Ball’s agent told Yahoo Sports that the 19-year-old has declared for the 2018 NBA Draft.

His father, LaVar Ball, pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA early in his freshman season shortly after he and two teammates were arrested for shoplifting during a team trip to China.

At the time, the elder Ball said, “He’s not transferring to another school. The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the NBA Draft.”

LiAngelo and younger brother LaMelo Ball have played professionally for the Lithuanian club Vytautus since January. Their eldest brother, Lonzo, was the second overall pick in last year’s draft.

LiAngelo Ball is considered by scouts to have the least promise of the three brothers.
