House arrest likely punishment for arrested UCLA players

Lonzo Ball keeps quiet on his brother LiAngelo after shoplifting incident in China

The players were released on bail Wednesday, but ordered to stay at the hotel until their legal situation was resolved.

Ball, the younger brother of National Basketball Association rookie Lonzo Ball of the Los Angeles Lakers, declined to comment when reached by phone at his hotel on Wednesday.

"The players were treated with the utmost respect, kindness and professionalism at all times by the Hangzhou police", the source, who had firsthand knowledge of the release, told ESPN.

During the Golden State-Minnesota broadcast on Wednesday night, ESPN NBA color commentator Jeff Van Gundy blasted the Pac-12 for its decision to send UCLA and Georgia Tech to China for an early-season college basketball game.

A UCLA spokesman did not confirm or deny the information, referring to the school's statement that it was cooperating with local authorities.

The three USA college basketball players were questioned about allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store during UCLA's visit to Hangzhou.

One such former pro is Devean George, who played in the National Basketball Association for 11 seasons, seven of those with the Los Angeles Lakers, who gave his reaction to Ball's situation.

Luiz feels Conte is 'punishing' him for Costa friendship
I have these players, and then I repeat I have to make the best decision for the team. Luiz was guilty of some shocking defending against AS Roma in the Champions League.

If tried and convicted, LiAngleo Ball and his teammates could face between three and 10 years in prison.

"We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China", UCLA said in a statement.

"We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about", Scott said.

That latter news ironically came a day before President Trump's Thursday visit with China.

The three were arrested for reportedly shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton next to the hotel. "We stand ready to provide appropriate consular assistance for U.S. citizens".
