Lakers Scout Spotted in Lithuania Possibly Checking out LiAngelo Ball


A Los Angeles Lakers scout was spotted in Lithuania today during a game in which LiAngelo Ball was playing. LiAngelo’s team, BC Vytautas, played against Nevezis, who also has an NBA Draft prospect on their team.

According to Donatas Urbonas of, “Los Angeles Lakers scout was in the stands watching Nevezis-Vytautas game in Kedainiai. NBA Draft prospects LiAngelo Ball and Tadas Sedekerskis performed well.”

LiAngelo declared for the 2018 NBA Draft last month despite not being listed on any mock drafts. According to his father, LaVar, LiAngelo was a one-and-done prospect no matter what.

With the scout in attendance, LiAngelo did not disappoint. While coming off the bench, he scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, which included going perfect from behind the arc at 3-for-3 in only 18 minutes of action.

Whether or not the Lakers will use one of their picks on the middle Ball brother will be determined in a couple months. The fact that a scout saw him play, and quite well, bodes much better for his chances at landing on an NBA roster.
