LaVar said that his son LiAngelo Ball is not going to transfer schools this season, but will look at other playing options. "He's out of there".
In November, UCLA teammates Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were benched and subsequently suspended indefinitely after being released on bail following an alleged shoplifting incident in China.
A reason LiAngelo Ball was on the UCLA roster was due to his older brother, Lonzo, starring there past year, and because his five-star recruit younger brother, LaMelo, is slated to go there in 2019. "So basically they're in jail here".
The former UCLA freshman never officially played a single game for the team. LiAngelo is eligible to enter the NBA Draft in 2018. "We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future".More news: South Korea creates 'decapitation' unit targeting North's leadership

When LiAngelo returned to the United States, the university put him on indefinite suspension, a punishment that LaVar believes is unjust because the charges were dropped against his son. "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them". The three issued public apologies after returning to the U.S. The players also expressed gratitude to Chinese authorities and to President Trump for intervening on their behalf. "That's like telling the Clippers back in the day not to play JJ Redick", LaVar Ball said.
A family spokesperson added LiAngelo and Lavar appreciate UCLA for everything. despite the circumstances that led to the suspension.
The elder Ball says he hasn't spoken to the school about withdrawing his son.
