In a shocking move, LaVar Ball has reportedly pulled LiAngelo Ball out of UCLA, both off the basketball team and out of school, per TMZ Sports.

As LaVar Ball weighs options for his middle son, it's safe to say that a jump to the National Basketball Association shouldn't be one of them. "He's out of there".

Sources with knowledge of the situation told the celebrity news website that LaVar believes UCLA's suspension is unfair, considering the charges against him and his teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were dropped after their shoplifting arrest. LiAngelo's best plan would be finding a new school and developing as a basketball prospect. He was one of three UCLA players arrested in November for allegedly shoplifting at a high-end store in Hangzhou, China, ahead of a game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai. The trio created an worldwide incident that eventually saw President Donald Trump, while visiting Beijing as part of a five-nation Asia tour, personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help resolve the case. President Trump, who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled. "So basically they're in jail here", he added.

It's doubtful that LiAngelo Ball can land a big contract in Europe, but there might be some teams willing to sign him. LiAngelo is eligible to enter the NBA Draft in 2018. His brother Lonzo played one season with the Bruins before being drafted No. 2 by the Lakers.

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