From the Bleacher Report:

LaVar Ball is going to give the top amateur basketball players in the country an opportunity to get paid to play instead of going to college.

Per ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Ball is funding the Junior Basketball Association through the Big Baller Brand with players being paid anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 per month.

Ball said he hopes to feature 80 players for 10 teams with games potentially being held at NBA arenas located in Los Angeles, Dallas, Brooklyn and Atlanta.

“Getting these players is going to be easy,” Ball told Rovell. “This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.”

None of the Ball Brothers are expected to play in the newly created basketball association.
