Charlotte Hornets rookie guard LaMelo Ball speaks with reporters about his first day of practice with the team in preparation for the 2020-21 NBA season.

LaMelo, who is the younger brother of the New Orleans Pelicans star guard Lonzo Ball, also provides his thoughts on forward Gordon Hayward signing with the Hornets and how his teammates have spoken positively about his work ethic.

Last season, the nineteen-year-old played 12 games for the Illawarra Hawks of the Australian-based National Basketball League before suffering a foot injury. He averaged 17.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game.
