  • LiAngelo Ball, two other UCLA players released after arrest in China

LiAngelo Ball is the younger brother of Lonzo, who starred at UCLA last season before being the No. 2 overall NBA Draft pick by the Lakers.

"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.

LiAngelo, Riley and Hill won't play when UCLA tips off its 2017-18 season against Georgia Tech in Shanghai tomorrow night. Asked later in the day whether he was anxious about his son, LaVar replied, according to ESPN: "He'll be fine, he'll be fine".

UCLA, one of the United States' premier college basketball programs, says the university is cooperating fully with local authorities.

The Chinese government reported the incident to US officials, Chinese foreign ministry officials previously said.

We are directing all inquiries about the specifics of this matter to UCLA.

"I'm just trying to focus on the game", Ball said when asked for his thoughts on hearing about the situation.

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

In a statement to PEOPLE, UCLA said, "We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China". "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards". According to ESPN, the players were accused of shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store.

That latter news ironically came a day before President Trump's Thursday visit with China. "We stand ready to provide appropriate consular assistance for USA citizens".

LiAngelo Ball, a freshman, is the middle child of LaVar and Tina Ball.

If that is the case, the three players would not be with UCLA when the Bruins are in Kansas City later this month for the CBE Hall of Fame Classic. Their youngest son, LaMelo Ball, is in high school.

While the situation hasn't seemed to affect Ball yet, Lakers coach Luke Walton plans to monitor his rookie point guard and speak with him about it Wednesday.

The family stars in its own reality show on Facebook, "Ball in the Family", and boasts an athletic apparel line, Big Baller Brand.
