What They're Saying ...
"Ball is a natural point guard blessed with rare vision and creativity. He finds angles that don’t exist and throws passes few other players alive would even consider. He also has the best ball handling ability in this year’s class, able to shake defenders and create separation with tight crossovers and pace manipulation... Ball will have to prove he can score efficiently in the halfcourt to give his passing extra juice, and that remains a work in progress." – Ricky O'Donnell, SB Nation
"He has elite court vision and feel for the game and is considered a consensus top-three player in this draft. If his shot develops and he's able to add weight to his frame he has a chance to be the standout star of this class." – Kyle Boone, CBS Sports
"Ball is the younger brother of Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball and has a tight handle and great size. He is a phenomenal passer, especially in the pick-and-roll, and averaged 6.8 assists per game for the Illawarra Hawks in Australia." – Krysten Peek, Yahoo Sports
"Good size and length, especially for position … Can shoot off the catch or dribble. Shoots it well from deep and has good arc on shot, most of his makes find the bottom of the net." – NBADraft.net
