Those options will not include transferring to another school.

The highly publicized guard is now on an indefinite suspension from UCLA following a shoplifting arrest in China that left him temporarily detained overseas. The Post's Tim Bontemps reported last month that, unlike his brother, Lakers guard Lonzo Ball, LiAngelo isn't viewed by scouts as a legitimate National Basketball Association prospect. The arrests became an even bigger story when President Donald Trump intervened on behalf of the players with Chinese president Xi Jinping and they were allowed to come home shortly thereafter. During a press conference, all three players apologized for their actions and thanked President Trump for his efforts in helping them return to the States, but they remain suspended. It was unclear how long the suspensions were to last.

TMZ reports that the elder Ball believes the suspension is unfair because the charges were dropped and thinks "There's no need to break down a kid's spirit for making a mistake".
