*LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball have quit BC Vytautas in Lithuania just three months after they joined the team, all because their famous father isn’t happy with their treatment.
Per Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas, LaVar said he is bringing his sons back home to Los Angeles because LiAngelo is dealing with an ankle injury and LaMelo was spending much of his time on the bench.
“We’re not going to waste our time no more,” Ball said.
“We’re not going to waste our time no more”, LaVar told. LiAngelo injured his ankle, LaMelo didn’t get any playing time, so LaVar decided to take all his sons back to LA. Lonzo is visiting his family in Prienai right now. They’re set to leave Sunday-Monday.

LaVar’s decision came after Vytautas announced LiAngelo and LaMelo wouldn’t play in Wednesday’s game against Siauliai due to injuries.
LiAngelo’s agent, meanwhile, has submitted paperwork to make the 19-year-old eligible for the 2018 NBA draft in June, according to Yahoo News.
In 14 games with Vytautas, LiAngelo ranked second on the team with 12.6 points per game. He shot 41.5 percent from three-point range.
LaMelo averaged just 12.4 minutes per game in eight contests. He averaged 6.5 points and 2.4 assists but shot 26.8 percent overall (15-of-56).
