Lithuanian club Vytautas Prienai revealed the jersey numbers of LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball. LaMelo will wear No. 1 and LiAngelo, No. 3.

The club will have their jerseys available for sale in the United States via Amazon, reports Yahoo! Sports NBA insider Shams Charania.

Charania says that the first-division team shipped roughly "500 game jerseys half LaMelo jerseys and half LiAngelo ones to an Amazon warehouse in the U.S. and is expected to ship more to deliver late in the first week of January."

They are giving themselves a great opportunity. Lithuania is a beautiful country. Its high-level basketball, so well see how they do it.

It's almost guaranteed to be a marketing boon for the Ball brand and Vytautas.

Vytautas plays competitively in the Baltic and Lithuanian leagues, both of which will likely see significant attendance and international coverage boosts in any games the Balls participate.
