UCLA's Steve Alford hasn't spoken to LiAngelo Ball, focused on remaining Bruins

WATCH: LaVar, LiAngelo Ball explain shoplifting incident in China, decision to leave UCLA

According to Ball, the move was made because the NCAA was being slow to rule on LiAngelo Ball's eligibility and "one of the main reasons he went to UCLA" was to play basketball.

The Big Baller Brand CEO is looking for a possible landing spot for his two sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, after he recently pulled the former from UCLA. But that was just the beginning, as LaVar also appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio, where he was asked about son Lonzo Ball and the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers, who've lost five games in a row.

"We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA", he said.

The incident garnered national attention and criticism for the Ball family, most of it aimed at Lavar, who did not restrain his words about the incident or President Donald Trump's involvement.

Cody Riley, from left, LiAngelo Ball and Jalen Hill read statements admitting that they stole items from multiple stores in Hangzhou, China, last week. I don't think it's angry. Arturs Stalbergs, head coach of the Lithuanian basketball team KK Lietkabelis Panevezys, offered a job for the Balls, although it likely wasn't one LaVar had in mind.

UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball is surrounded by reporters and photographers as he leaves Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, in Los Angeles.

LiAngelo Ball is regarded as a long shot to be drafted in June, and that was before his arrest in China.

He didn't say the small stuff, but thrived on major hyperboles - he could beat Michael Jordan, his oldest son could lift a struggling franchise and become the face of the National Basketball Association and all three sons would spend one year at UCLA before becoming NBA players - something that has never happened before. "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them?" Alas, there is no ad-blocker for Ball stories on your television or Twitter feeds, his daily nonsense shoved down your throat whether you like it or not.

The university disciplinary process via the office of student conduct is ongoing, Alford said Tuesday, adding that he didn't have a timeline for when it would be finished. However, a source at UCLA told ESPN's Arash Markazi that this is probably the end for the Ball family at the school.

Why not, he was asked. "I didn't make that decision". "I'm here at Pauley Pavilion every day".
