By signing with an agent, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball mostly likely have forfeited their eligibility if they ever wanted to play college basketball

"I don't care about the money," LaVar Ball said to ESPN.com. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time. The priority is for the boys to play on the same team."

The agent, Harrison Gaines, also represents Lonzo Ball.

Earlier this week, LaVar Ball pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA weeks after he and two other freshmen were caught shoplifting in China prior to UCLA's season opener against Georgia Tech.

LaMelo Ball also withdrew from Chino Hills High School in California earlier this year.

LaVar Ball said he doesn't know what overseas teams are interested in his sons.

"I don't know the deals and who is offering what," LaVar Ball said. "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested. I just need to get them playing again."
