LONZO BALL (NOP)
PG • 6'6, 190 lbs; 3rd year, UCLA
NBA ROLE: CREATIVE, ALL-AROUND PG
The hype surrounding Lonzo Ball is justified - he possesses incredible basketball instincts, knows what it takes to lead; unshakable demeanor: always in control w/ the rock - Ball has an entire cookbook of dishes in his back pocket...lookaheads, lobs, post entries, slice-thru bounces - wants to ramp up pace whenever possible; decent midrange scorer, solid quick float game, though awkward release can lead to difficult looks at times; good athlete w/ burst, can get to the rim after a couple dribbles; natural contributor on defense - normally in the mix for deflections, steals & blocks - welcomes challenges v. elite opponents; outside game is promising, yet raw - Ball's unorthodox release is tough to gauge - confident in range, consistently launches deep, stand still triples; needs to improve strength & overall efficiency as a scorer; dealt to Pelicans (Summer ‘19) - Lonzo’s upside: franchise PG?
