As first reported by TMZ, the eldest Ball is removing his middle son, LiAngelo, from UCLA.

LaVar Ball put an end to his son LiAngelo's indefinite suspension at UCLA by working to pull his son from the school, according to multiple reports. "He's out of there".

"He's not transferring to another school", he told ESPN. However, Ball has maintained that his son's lapse in judgment "ain't that big a deal". "The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the National Basketball Association draft".

One NBA executive was rather blunt about the NBA prospects for Lonzo Ball's younger brother.

LaVar Ball told ESPN he's "exploring other options" for LiAngelo, who was one of the three UCLA players suspended indefinitely following an alleged shoplifting incident in China.

He even recently was on CNN, refusing to thank President Donald Trump for his involvement in releasing his son, LiAngelo Ball, from China. UCLA is 7-1 without the three players, although the team has fallen out of the Top 25 before conference play begins.

The charges against LiAngelo - and two other UCLA freshmen - were dropped, which is what reportedly has LaVar peeved over the suspension.

However, a family spokesperson also noted that both LiAngelo and LaVar appreciate UCLA for the opportunity to play there and for everything they have done for the family. But a school might be willing to take a chance on him, though it's doubtful that it will be a program as prestigious as UCLA.
