Ball, the brother of Lakers rookie and former Bruin Lonzo Ball, was arrested in early November along with Jalen Hill and Cody Riley while the UCLA team was in China to take part in a season-opening game against Georgia Tech.

LaVar Ball is taking the reins on his suspended son's basketball future. "So basically they're in jail here", Ball added.

A reason LiAngelo Ball was on the UCLA roster was due to his older brother, Lonzo, starring there a year ago, and because his five-star recruit younger brother, LaMelo, is slated to go there in 2019.

While TMZ has reported that LiAngelo is not yet officially withdrawn from the school, the basketball player is reportedly remaining home and will not be going back to the school.

"We are exploring other options with 'Gelo", said LaVar, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN. President Trump, who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled. After pleas by President Donald Trump and the US State Department, Ball, and two other freshmen players at UCLA, were allowed to leave the country, and had the charges dismissed.

"I'm not sitting back and waiting", LaVar Ball told ESPN.

Ball told ESPN he hasn't decided where LiAngelo will play this season.

The decision puts a wrench in LaVar Ball's plan to put each of his three sons through one year at UCLA before they become eligible for the National Basketball Association draft.

"I haven't told any of those guys,"Lavar told ESPN".
