Washington State's Robert Franks says he'll declare for NBA

LaMelo, the youngest of the Ball brothers, has played alongside LiAngelo with Vytautas Prienu since the two made their debut for the club in January. Today, his middle child LiAngelo, who is commonly known as "Gelo", has just submitted and filed papers in order to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo sports.

LiAngelo Ball put up a whopping 72 points for his Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas in a 159-115 win.

LiAngelo Ball hopes to be the kind of player that can prove himself to be a useful National Basketball Association player in this year's draft process, officially declaring for the draft on Tuesday morning, as his agent Harrison Gaines told Yahoo's Shams Charania.

Roach averaged 12.3 points and 3.7 rebounds this season and often guarded the opponent's best perimeter player. LiAngelo's older brother, Lonzo, was the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and is playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The former UCLA player and brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has certainly proved thus far that he is a pro-caliber player in Europe. In December 2016, LiAngelo had a 72-point performance for Chino Hills, and in February LaMelo had a 92-point game.

Porter, Jr. played just minutes in his collegiate debut against Iowa State before coming out with what would later be diagnosed as a back injury requiring surgery.

"He's going to be taken care of either way", LaVar Ball said of LiAngelo Ball.

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.
