Thanks to the Charlotte Hornets, all three Ball brothers are officially in the NBA.
LiAngelo Ball signed a deal with the Hornets on Monday, just a day before the team starts its 2022-23 training camp.
This means that, yes, all the Ball brothers are in the league and now two of them are on the same squad since LaMelo Ball is the star player for Charlotte.
LaMelo x LiAngelo. 🔥

The two brothers posed for a picture at the team’s media day and they were all smiles as they sat side-by-side.
But what are the chances that they really appear on the court together in the upcoming season?
Should fans of the Ball family keep their expectations in check?
The signing of LiAngelo is obviously a big deal for the Balls and is a cause for celebration.
However, there is a chance he doesn’t actually play for the Hornets when the regular season starts.
The Hornets’ roster is now at the maximum of 20, which means the team will make cuts before the regular season tips off next month.
NBA rosters are capped at 15 athletes for the regular season.
This means that LiAngelo will be playing his heart out at training camp to earn one of the last spots on the squad.
If he pulls it off, he will be able to play with his brother, the former Rookie of the Year.
If it doesn’t work out, he will likely move back to the G League or possibly overseas.
LiAngelo played for the Hornets’ Summer League team recently and averaged 6 points and 2 rebounds for his three games.
What will he do at training camp and will it be enough to get him an official deal with his brother’s team?
