While LaVar Ball coaches two of his kids in Lithuania, his Big Baller Brand is trying to create a professional basketball league for players who do not wish to go to college before entering the NBA Draft.  Ball told Darren Rovell players could make up to $8,000 a month in the ten-team Junior Baller Association. In order to have a league, you have to have players. That might be a problem. A basketball recruiting account that edits pictures for prospects, @TiptonEdits, is releasing screenshots of DMs from the Big Baller Brand to elite high school recruits.  According to the account, one of the Big Baller Brand's targets is Kentucky signee Tyler Herro. The account also shared DMs from BBB to Vanderbilt signee and former UK recruit Simi Shittu, former UofL commit Anfernee Simons and Kansas signee Devon Dotson. Even though they sent out a feeler, it looks like they've been turned down by Tyler Herro.  I guess LaVar just isn't a big enough baller to keep up with Coach Cal.

Update (11:41)

ESPN's Jeff Borzello has confirmed that BBB did reach out to Herro, who declined the offer to play in the Junior Baller Association. [mobile_ad]
