The Golden State Warriors have no interest to draft LaMelo Ball, per Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Golden State has the No.2 pick in the Draft, yet it seems it will pass on the youngest Ball brother.

“I’d be shocked if the Warriors took LaMelo. It just doesn’t really make sense on multiple levels. What makes LaMelo great is his court vision and passing, but he’d have a tough time maximizing those in the Bay Area.

Golden State won’t pass on LaMelo just because they don’t want to deal with his dad. But I’ll tell you what, it sure doesn’t help,” said a Western Conference scout, who spoke under the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to talk about the draft publicly, via Letourneau.

Ball is expected to be a top prospect in the 2020 NBA Draft.
