The Hornets have selected former Illawara Hawks guard LaMelo Ball with the third pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Ball has been widely described as the most purely talented prospect in this year’s class, capable of pulling off passes many active NBA guards couldn’t dream of. The Hornets have a logjam at guard but they clearly couldn't pass up Ball's natural talents. His incredible ball handling means he can dazzle without turning the ball over often. Oversized for a guard, his body and wingspan open the door to becoming a great defender down the road. Like his brother, he struggles shooting the ball, averaging just 38% from the field and 72% from the line during his time in the Australian National Basketball League.
