Welcome to the NBA, LiAngelo Ball.

The midfielder brother Ball, who has bounced around in various camps and G-League teams in recent years, is said to have signed a contract ahead of pre-season.

Shams Charania reports that LiAngelo Ball is signing with the Charlotte Hornets.

“LiAngelo Ball signs a non-guaranteed deal with the Charlotte Hornets. Ball also spent last season’s training camp with the Hornets, joining his brother LaMelo,” he reported Monday morning.

It would be cool to see LaMelo and LiAngelo play together in the NBA. They played together overseas for a short time.

“A trade away from Dad Ball’s dream come true,” one fan wrote.

“Now that Gelo is in the league, when will all of Twitter finally admit that LaVar was right all along after you spent years slandering the man?” another fan wrote.

“Lavar Ball is that man, period,” added a fan.

“Everyone laughed at Lavar. Guess what? NEVA LOST,” one fan wrote.

Congratulations to LiAngelo and the Ball family.
