UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting in China released on bond

According to ESPN, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill are not allowed to leave their hotel room until the end of the legal proceedings against them. He also added that it could cause a distraction for his older brother, Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball, in his coming games.

Earlier this week, LaVar told reporters that the situation "ain't that big a deal," but has been uncharacteristically quiet since.

UCLA's LiAngelo Ball is one of the three players arrested in China on shoplifting charges. This marks the third consecutive year that a team from the Pac-12 Conference, to which UCLA belongs, will play a regular season game on Chinese soil.

"He'll be fine. He'll be fine", LaVar told ESPN while referring to his son.
