With the third pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets select, LaMelo Ball, Guard, Illawarra Hawks.
The Hornets get a future stud in Ball. Ball is a very similar play to his brother Lonzo Ball who can flirt with a triple-double on any given night. He was averaging 17 points a game, 7 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. You add him to the backcourt with Devonte’ Graham and that is an absolutely lethal backcourt. The Hornets needed to make a splash and they did with this pick. They will be an extremely fun team for years to come.
Chicago Bulls, you’re on the clock.
