LaVar has proclaimed that LiAngelo will enter the 2018 NBA Draft, so transferring to another school for next season was not an option.
The Ball brothers could even find themselves playing in the Chinese league, where several former National Basketball Association players have gone on to make million-dollar salaries towards the end of their careers.
LaVar Ball's middle son, LiAngelo, withdrew from UCLA earlier this week, about a month fter he and two teammates caused an worldwide stir by getting arrested on shoplifting charges during a team trip to China.
LaVar Ball seemed to escalate his feud with US President Donald Trump on Thursday. LaVar plans on travelling with the boys wherever they end up, and says two of their uncles will also be taking the trip and keeping an eye on them as well.
Online sports book Bovada had LiAngelo's chances of being drafted at -10000 on the moneyline, meaning anyone who took the extraordinarily long odds could win $10,000 on a mere $100 bet. It's a future that has nearly certainly been made more unlikely by this move.
Lonzo Ball said he thinks his brother LiAngelo's decision to leave UCLA "is a good decision".
He definitively added about LaMelo: "He's not going to play college basketball".
In another Twitter post, which was a Periscope video, Vitale said that LiAngelo Ball was was the worst offender of the three who were under house arrest in China (Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were the others). "I'm letting Harrison handle all that, but I know there are a few teams interested".
