LaVar Ball pulls LiAngelo Ball out of UCLA

Ball said on Monday that he meant to pull his son, LiAngelo, off the team and out of the school; over the indefinite suspension the school issued after LiAngelo's role in shoplifting incident in China.

"I'm not sitting back and waiting", LaVar Ball told ESPN. "He's out of there".

The choice to reportedly remove LiAngelo out of college comes just over two months after LaVar pulled his youngest son, LaMelo, out of Chino Hills High School to home-school and train the 16-year-old UCLA commit.

Following the shoplifting incident, LiAngelo Ball has been serving an indefinite suspension at UCLA and hasn't been allowed to play, practice or travel with the team.

LiAngelo was a freshman and never actually played a game for the team. President Trump, who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled.


"I told my boys that one of them wasn't going to make it. So basically they're in jail here", he added. However, LaVar Ball questioned the extent of Trump's involvement in securing his son's release from Chinese custody during a combative 20-minute CNN interview.

LaVar Ball attends the BIG3 at Staples Center on August 13, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. While LiAngelo Ball is good enough to make the UCLA roster, he probably has little chance to make an National Basketball Association roster anytime soon.

It appears the main one of those options is to prepare the player for June's National Basketball Association draft.

It's doubtful that LiAngelo Ball can land a big contract in Europe, but there might be some teams willing to sign him.
