As his younger brother prepares for the NBA Draft, LiAngelo Ball is looking to work his way into the Association.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the 21-year-old Ball is expected to sign with a G-League team here soon.

As noted, Ball had been practicing with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s G-League affiliate. Though, he is not under contract and hasn’t suited up for a game.

An undrafted free agent back in 2018, Ball fell out of favor following an international incident in China that saw him accused of shoplifting.

The UCLA product is seen as the less-talented brother of New Orleans Pelicans star Lonzo and likely top 2020 NBA Draft pick LaMelo.
