The Ball brothers have signed with Prienu Vytautas in Lithuania. Vytautas plays in the Lithuanian League (i.e. "A" league) and the Baltic League (i.e. "B" League). General expectations seem to be they'll play role player minutes in the "B" League games.

This has the makings of a highly entertaining reality show. Vytautas is a lower-level European team that's broke, and the club plays in a town of roughly 10,000 in a 1,700 seat "arena". Huge cultural shock factor, especially factoring in seasonal weather. The brand of basketball in that nation, and across much of Europe, is extremely physical and disciplined. LaMelo may get his azz kicked by teammates if he even plays remotely like he did at Chino Hills and in AAU.

I'd bet Lavar changes course within about a month.

What kind of money are they making anyway, like $20k/year?

Kind of what I was thinking. A month may be too long before LaVar gets into it with them

Looking like that's already in the plans. From the article http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...ania-lithuania

"For now, the Ball brothers are only locked in for one month, as both sides have the option to terminate the contract if all parties aren't satisfied with the arrangement.

"There is a clause to terminate the contract after a month, so it's more of an experiment at this stage," Kubilius (club director) said."
