LaVar Ball has plenty to say about the coaches who are tasked with getting the most out of his basketball-playing sons, but now he’s getting a chance to see his sons play pro ball exactly the way he wants.
According to ESPN, Ball will serve as an assistant coach for Vytautas on Tuesday night in a Big Baller Challenge game in Lithuania.
Ball will be an assistant coach against BC Dzukija on Tuesday. The Big Baller Challenge is the 5-game series of friendlies Vytautas set up when the Balls were signed in December. The games were a way to get the Balls more playing time, as the team’s regular season schedule is against much bigger, older teams.
“He will be an assistant coach on game protocol but will drive the team through the game and make many of the decisions,” a Vytautas spokesperson told ESPN. “The style the team is going to play is going to be LaVar’s choice.”
