LiAngelo Ball was one of three players the Detroit Pistons foregone on Monday (Dec. 14), and now the Point Guard's outspoken father is showing his frustration with the franchise.
Later on Monday, LaVar Ball called the pistons "ragged as hell" and added that "they're going to learn the hard way," according to an AMA he attended.
"I definitely have thoughts about it," said LaVar Ball. "The Detroit people are great. I love the fans, but the franchise there is bloody ragged. You don't know a good player. I gave them a free lottery! (He) has the skills to play and the notoriety to get everyone involved. "
He continued, “How do you toss that out the window? You'll learn the hard way. My boys will play somewhere together. “Gelo can turn off the lights. What they did was ragged. But hey, they're gonna learn the hard way. "
LiAngelo had previously signed a non-guaranteed one-year contract with the Detroit Pistons.
According to The Athletic, Ball – the middle brother of New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball and Charlotte Hornets' top 5 draft pick LaMelo Ball – signed the deal for Exhibition 10, which can be terminated at any time.

An exhibition contract 10 is a training camp invitation that guarantees signers between $ 5,000 and $ 50,000. Ball's deal can also be sent to the G League or converted into a two-way contract.
Ball was a practice player at Oklahoma City Thunder’s G League subsidiary OKC Blue last season, but never appeared in a game shortly after when the coronavirus pandemic hit.
