The Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in picking LaMelo Ball in the 2020 NBA Draft, according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.

Despite the presence of guards Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, the Cavs will have no problem to select Ball in the upcoming Draft.

“The sense that I get is that they have a top tier of guys and it’s three of them. It’s James Wiseman, Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball. And I think no matter what the Cavs do, they’re not going to let fit and position drive this decision.

They’re going to take a bunch of different factors and they’re going cluster them together and weight them. But they’re not going to say ‘Because we drafted Darius Garland last year and Collin Sexton the year before, LaMelo Ball is out.’

They’re not going to do that. They don’t feel like they’re in a position to do that,” Fedor said during an interview on 92.3 The Fan, via Jacob Rude of Lonzo Wire.

Ball played 12 games in the NBL before suffering a foot injury, averaging 17.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.8 assists.
