Lonzo Ball’s younger brother, LaMelo Ball, hopes to be the no. 1 pick in 2020 NBA Draft.

Another Ball has hit the NBA news as Lonzo’s younger brother LaMelo discussed his future plans and his hopes to be the no. 1 pick in 2020 NBA Draft. LaMelo sat down with ESPN’s "The Jump" on Monday to make some announcements. He said that he will play for the Illawarra Hawks in Australia’s NBL.

According to USA Today, the 17-year-old athlete revealed that Australia has presented the best path to become the no. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

"I just think it's the best route for me. I'm trying to be the No. 1 pick for the 2020 draft. So, I heard they've got great strength and conditioning over there. Off the court gotta be good. On the court, pros have been through there … It's just best for me, I think," LaMelo said.

So far, this is the only thing known about Australia’s offer to LaMelo, but reports claimrd that he is expected to receive a six-figure contract for only one season to go along with perks such as apartment, car, air travel and training. This is because LaMelo is going to be a member of Australia’s “Next Stars” NBL Program.

Lavar Ball, the biological father of LaMelo, talked to Stephen A. Smith on ESPN's "First Take" and discussed the future of his son. Lavar was confident that his son will be NBA’s 2020 no. 1 overall pick and proud when he said that LaMelo is “that good.”

“Melo, is gon’ be, watch me dance again, number 1 pick in 2020. Cause he’s that good! He’s that good,” Lavar told Smith.

It is quite easy for a father to say that his son is going to be the no. 1 pick in NBA Draft, especially for Lavar, who has always been a stage dad for his sons. But several months ago, someone close to LaMelo who witnessed his overall characteristics first-hand has already stated that the former Chino Hills High School point guard has what it takes to be the no. 1 pick in 2020 NBA Draft.

Spire Prep Academy head coach Jermaine Jackson spoke with TMZ back in November 2018 and said that he could see LaMelo going high in the NBA Draft, The Bleacher Report noted.

"In my opinion, LaMelo Ball can be the No. 1 pick in a year or two going to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ain't no question about it," Jackson said.
