LaVar Ball is not happy this week.
Over the weekend, the Detroit Pistons got social media buzzing after they cut LiAngelo Ball after he signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract in early December.
LaVar Ball called the Detroit Pistons organization “raggedy as hell” after they waived his son.
Here’s what he said to Bleacher Report AMA on Monday:
“I definitely have thoughts on that. The people in Detroit are great. I love the fans, but the franchise over there is raggedy as hell. They don’t know a good player. I was giving them a lottery pick for free! Has the skills to play and the notoriety to bring everybody to the game. How do you throw that out the window? They’re gonna learn the hard way. My boys are gonna end up together playing somewhere. ‘Gelo can shoot the lights out. That was raggedy what they did. But hey, they’re gonna learn the hard way.”
The 22-year-old LiAngelo spent part of last season in the G League with the Oklahoma City Blue as a practice player and was set to make his debut before the global pandemic shut everything down.
