Lavar Ball said he is not concerned with the money, but wants his sons to be playing basketball again - on the same team and on the court at the same time.

LaVar Ball told Jeff Goodman that he'll deputize a trio of Ball uncles to accompany the brothers wherever they go and help prepare them for an National Basketball Association future.

His father LaVar confirmed that LaMelo will indeed not play college basketball.

I watched the first season of the family's reality show, Ball in the Family.

Ball said earlier this week that the plan was still for LaMelo, who withdrew from Chino Hills (California) High School early in his junior season, to play at UCLA in two years.

Feeling impatient, LaVar and LiAngelo announced the latter's intention to pull out of the school on Tuesday so he can focus on preparing for the 2018 NBA Draft. Conversely, it would take a $2,500 bet on LiAngelo going undrafted to win only $100 - a significantly more likely scenario.

On Thursday, though, LaVar put that dilemma to rest.

Teams in Europe and Asia have expressed interest in the brothers, according to ESPN.

Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com passed along comments from the Ball family patriarch, who said the main focus is getting the Ball brothers on the same roster, not the financial details of their contracts. As a former middle school basketball coach, I've witness firsthand how parents think little Johnny or Susan are the next great Olympians and anyone who tells them otherwise is insane and doesn't know what they're talking about.
