"We are exploring other options with 'gelo", LaVar Ball told ESPN. "He's out of there".
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. "So basically they're in jail here", Ball added.
Those options will not include transferring to another school. "Because if you've got three, only one, maybe two make it to the NBA", LaVar Ball said.
LiAngelo, who was in his freshman season with the Bruins, never played a game for UCLA and is now suspended indefinitely from the team. "We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future". "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them".
The three players have remained indefinitely suspended by the program.
As part of their indefinite suspensions, the players haven't been allowed to suit up, practice or travel with the Bruins.
If the National Basketball Association draft is the family's focus, Ball might have an uphill battle.
A family spokesperson added LiAngelo and Lavar appreciate UCLA for everything. despite the circumstances that led to the suspension. LaVar Ball publicly downplayed Trump's role in freeing his son and refused to offer the praise that the president was expecting.
