Reading between the lines it looks like the suspensions to Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill are going to be long enough that those players won't be seeing the court anytime soon so LaVar pulled the plug. They definitely will not suit up to face Michigan on Saturday.
That's good for us because UCLA has been thin in the frontcourt and could really use their 4* big men. Their center is a double-double machine but he doesn't have a backup and their forwards haven't provided much.
But a little schadenfreude never hurt anybody and LaVar's meltdown has been pretty comical. He claims that the punishment is too harsh, especially for a player like LiAngelo who he thinks is the best shooter on the team. He also isn't transfering and will just work out for the draft(?). Finally, he claims that UCLA used him to get Lonzo which is true but only because LaVar made them a package deal.
At least UCLA can get out of their commitment to LaMelo, the most overrated recruit in the history of college basketball.
