Ball's move to the JBA comes after his futile attempts to be drafted to the National Basketball Association, as he was not selected by any of the 30 teams after some unimpressive workouts.

The next move of LiAngelo Ball's basketball career will be following in his younger brother's footsteps.

LiAngelo Ball was not selected in the NBA Draft and has not received an invite to join any team during the Summer League, but fortunately he had a backup plan in place that he knew would work.

The reason for the New Jersey great-grandmother's death, per her family: PSE&G turned off her electricity due to an unpaid bill. Her daughter Desiree said energy provider PSEG shut off her mother's service because she had fallen behind on payments.

LiAngelo Ball is finally getting his wish to play for a Los Angeles basketball team - just not the one he originally intended. The JBA is sponsored by the Big Baller Brand and LaMelo Ball is already on the Ballers. "I'm trying to play ball and I'm trying to get better every day".

"It's all business. If you're not playing hard, you get sent home", LaMelo said. Once the season ends it will be interesting to see if LiAngelo decides to go overseas, or if he will stay in the United States and try to find another opportunity, maybe in the G League. This is the JBA, you have to come to play.

LiAngelo subsequently left UCLA and played professionally in Lithuania alongside LaMelo before entering the NBA Draft in June.
