Top 2020 NBA Draft prospect LaMelo Ball says Knicks are one of just two teams to interview him thus far

LaMelo Ball has been linked to the Knicks for quite some time now, and the point guard prospect has now added more fuel to the fire.

Appearing as a guest on ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby Show on Wednesday, Ball, who many consider the top overall prospect entering the 2020 NBA Draft, said he’s only met with two teams thus far.

Begley has also noted that Ball was at the top of the Knicks’ list of point guard prospects as recently as before the NBA’s bubble in Orlando started play.

Ball, a 19-year-old guard listed at 6-foot-7, averaged 17 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 6.8 assists in 12 games with the Illawarra Hawks of Australia’s NBL last season.

The Knicks could use a true scoring threat at the point guard position, which would certainly help other young players on the roster like R.J. Barrett and Mitchell Robinson bring out the best in their games.

Ball’s father LaVar has maintained that LaMelo has exactly what it takes to play in the bright lights of New York City.
