The Detroit Pistons continue to add to their roster, and this time it’s a name many basketball fans know.

LiAngelo Ball, the brother of two recent top-three NBA draft picks and the son of the outspoken LaVar Ball, has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Pistons.

The Athletic was first to report the deal. The contract has an Exhibit 10 clause, which is for the minimum salary and could be converted into a two-way deal, allowing the player to go between the NBA team and its G League affiliate. If Ball is waived after training camp, he could join the Grand Rapids Drive and receive a bonus.

Ball, 22, spent part of last season with the Oklahoma City Blue, the Thunder’s G League affiliate. He played just one game before the season ended due to the pandemic.
