LiAngelo Ball, brother of LaMelo and Lonzo Ball, will sign a deal with the NBA G League, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Gelo will qualify for this year’s NBA G-League Draft, where he could potentially be selected by Hornets’ partner team, the Greensboro Swarm. The Swarm currently holds the No. 26 overall selection in the draft.

Ball last played for the Charlotte Hornets in the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 9.6 points per game and 2.0 rebounds in 17.4 minutes per game while he was 34.5 percent off the three-point line lap.
Prior to his time in Vegas, Ball was undrafted in 2018 and played abroad in Lithuania in the Junior Basketball Association. He then signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder G League, but the season ended due to COVID-19. He then signed a training camp contract with the Detroit Pistons, but didn’t make it into the final lineup.
Now Gelo has another chance in the G League.
