Three UCLA men’s basketball players — including LiAngelo Ball, the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — were arrested in China just days before Friday’s season-opening game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

The players are being questioned about stealing from a Louis Vuitton store that is located next to the team’s hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before moving on to Shanghai on Wednesday.
