LaMelo Ball, Lonzo Ball’s little brother, is one of the biggest promises in the basketball world that has been submitted to the 2020 NBA Draft. The base of the Illawarra Hawks of Australia, according to experts, will enter the Top 5 of the lottery. Plus, it’s become the main summer obsession for a particular franchise: New York Knicks.

This has been reported by Marc Berman, journalist for the New York Post. The Big Apple franchise has focused all its efforts facing the Draft window and the signings on taking over the services of LaMelo. The Knicks consider that they lack a star to lead their project, and they see in the youngest of the Ball brothers the necessary figure to start building a future winner.
