LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo Ball, declared for the NBA draft on Tuesday just hours before putting up a monster stat line in Lithuania.

LiAngelo Ball scored 72 points and grabbed 11 rebounds on Tuesday, just hours after declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft even though he will almost certainly not be selected.

LaMelo Ball added 36 points in Vytautas’ 159-115 blowout win.

Prior to the game, LaVar Ball offered words of inspiration and encouragement to the team in the locker room.

LiAngelo needs to make a lot of progress if he hopes to get drafted this summer. The former UCLA guard isn't listed on B/R NBA draft analyst Jonathan Wasserman's most recent big board top 50.

The Big Baller Brand Challenge features teams from lower divisions and youth competition, so what LiAngelo and LaMelo did against Guangdong's youth team doesn't necessarily represent an evolutionary leap forward for either player.

With all eyes on LiAngelo as he tries to make it into the NBA, this was a strong starting point for him to showcase the talent that could end up getting him a job with a team before the start of next season.
