Arrested UCLA players returning from China

Citing a source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation, ESPN reported the players could be in Hangzhou for "a week or two" while the situation is resolved.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said early Tuesday that the Bruins players, detained November 7, are on a plane bound for Los Angeles, adding that the "matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities".

The three basketball players from the University of California, Los Angeles, were detained by police on November 7 in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou over allegations of shoplifting.

Arriving the day after the players were arrested, Trump reportedly raised the players' predicament during his visit to Beijing. But a few days before the game, the players were accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near their hotel. He said the trio, who had been held since last week, could have faced long prison sentences. The rest of the team flew home afterwards.

As previously shared, the three were in China for a game against Georgia Tech.

They were released on bail early Wednesday morning, ESPN reported.

Chinese authorities told the Post that the charges have been downgraded and the case against them is on a fast track toward resolution.

Ball's father, LaVar, said in a statement on social media that the process could take months.

"It's a very, very rough situation with what happened to them", Trump said.

The elder Ball has become a media personality by aggressively promoting his sons as future National Basketball Association superstars and had travelled to China on the trip to promote his Big Baller Brand shoe and apparel line. "After Trump raised the matter, Xi promised to look into the case and ensure that the players be treated fairly and expeditiously, said a USA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation".
