The Golden State Warriors were impressed by LaMelo Ball in the individual workout he conducted last Wednesday in Southern California.

Ball is expected to be a Top-3 pick in the Draft, with the Warriors selecting second this year.

“While Wiseman has long looked like the safest pick and best positional fit here, he no longer appears to be a lock for Golden State after Ball conducted an impressive workout in front of key members of the Warriors’ ownership group, front office and coaching staff.

Ball’s talent presents the possibility for special long-term upside, while Wiseman might be better equipped to immediately help the franchise return to the NBA Finals.

The Warriors have continued to do their due diligence by traveling to watch Anthony Edwards work out for a second time in recent days after an initially underwhelming first viewing,” Jonathan Givony of ESPN reports.

The 2020 NBA Draft will take place on Wednesday, November 18.
