LOS ANGELES – The Kia Picanto ball club is ready to sever its ties with chief playmaker LA Revilla.

In fact, team governor Bobby Rosales said the player has been told not to practice with the team anymore.

“We’re disappointed,” said Rosales on the controversial tweet of Revilla with regards the team’s decision to trade the season’s No. 1 overall pick to San Miguel Beer.

“Kung magpapalusot man lang sana ginandahan niyo na ang rason. Hindi talaga eh. Bagsak kayo sigurado kung may lie detector,” said Revilla on his Twitter account at the height of the trade talks.

Rosales said Revilla is still under contract with Kia for two more years but he’s free to look for a new taker.

“We’re really disappointed. We gave him a break and he’s the face of Kia, then….,” said Rosales.

In acquiring the Kia draft rights, San Miguel netted 6-foot-8 Fil-German player Christian Standhardinger in the recent PBA Rookie Draft.

Kia, meanwhile, gained the rights on veterans JayR Reyes, Ronald Tubid, Rashawn McCarthy and a future draft right.

“The team has been doing well in practice, according to coach Joe,” said Rosales as what was reported by their new team manager Joe Lipa.
