LaMelo Ball had Zoom interviews with both the Golden State Warriors and the New York Knicks ahead of the 2020 NBA draft, he told Jalen and Jacoby Wednesday.

The Warriors currently hold the No. 2 in the draft, while the Knicks are at No. 8.

According to Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report, Ball is the number 1 potential customer in the class.

Ball could join a Warriors squad expected to return in 2020-21 with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson poised to come back from injuries.

The Knicks think a lot about Ball too, with New York Post’s Marc Berman reporting that the team sees a drop in other point guards in the class. However, the team will likely have to go up in the first round to catch him.
