Ball family returns from Lithuania after overseas careers didn't go as planned

With LaVar Ball previously announcing LiAngelo and LaMelo would no longer play in Lithuania, it's difficult to know what the younger Ball brothers will do to continue their basketball progression.

The Ball family the patriarch LaVar, Lonzo, LaMelo, and LiAngelo have arrived in L.A. from Lithuania, but it wasn't exactly the grand return they had envisioned. 


LaVar previously announced LiAngelo and LaMelo would end their European careers, for the time being, indicating minor injuries and a disagreement with the coaching staff.

We're not going to waste our time no more. Coach ruined everything and hell have to pay the price that Melo is not coming back.

You'd have to consider the Ball's dalliance with Lithuania mainly a successful one, given the incredible exposure.


LaVar claims that they enjoyed their experience, and mostly left because of his disagreements over LaMelo's playing time. In fact, the youngest Ball will probably ramp up and play in Europe for another season before declaring for the 2019 draft.
