LiAngelo Ball has a Great Opportunity to Impress Scouts with Good Showing Versus Lietuvos Rytas


It’s been just over a week since LiAngelo Ball declared for the 2018 NBA Draft.  Since that time, he’s played three games, however, the only one that mattered, he severely underperformed. Last week, versus Lietkabelis, LiAngelo posted his worse statistical outing since his first game with three points on 1-of-7 shooting. To impress scouts, he’ll need a huge bounce back performance.

Not only do the remaining games hold weight for LiAngelo personally, but BC Vytautas is hoping to avoid relegation. With only 8 games remaining, Vytautas must win at least two more games to prevent dropping down to the NKL.

Vytautas’ standing and LKL status will largely be dependant on the play of LiAngelo for this final stretch. He’s currently leading them in scoring at 14.4 PPG. While team chemistry has been an issue for Vytautas much of this season due to a string of injuries as well as the insertion of LiAngleo and younger brother, LaMelo into the lineup midseason.

As of now, LiAngelo is not listed on any mock drafts, however, with a strong finish, as well as possibly leading Vytautas into the playoffs, we could potentially hear his name called on draft night.
