The president spent two days in China with Xi, discussing North Korea and trade relations among other issues.

Ball, Riley and Hill remain in China after to team flew back to Los Angeles following the Bruins' win Saturday over Georgia Tech. Theft of this nature is taken much more harshly in China than it is in the United States, and these players are finding that out the hard way.

President Donald Trump is getting involved in the case of the three UCLA basketball players arrested for allegedly shoplifting in China.

Xi assured Trump that the players would be treated fairly and expeditiously, the Post reported, after the US president brought up the topic in a Saturday meeting with Xi in Beijing.

That may have led to some legal help too. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Trump and Xi talked about the case. They were released on bail last week, but were told to remain in Hangzhou until the legal process was completed. The players were arrested last week and charged with shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store located next to the team's hotel.

The team has since returned home, without Ball, Riley and Hill. They made no public mention of the UCLA case. He'll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal.

LiAngelo Ball declined to comment when reached by phone at his hotel on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

LaVar Ball later released a statement about the allegations against LiAngelo: "It is a very unfortunate situation that the Ball family and UCLA has to deal with at this particular time".
