Would you like Lamelo Ball to be a Pelican?
i think yes if he learns to play both ends

If Lonzo wants him and he’s available for us why not

If the question is him being on the team vs not being on the team, well of course. Why would we not.

Theres no way it happens unless we win a top lottery pick. He is as good as anyone else on the draft board arguably.

I wonder if we trade up for him with future firsts and some package.

Imagine the media frenzy and even more increased spotlight on this franchise If Melo joins Zo... and Zion!

Generally, no.

But if he's the best player available when we draft, then absolutely.


If we're adding guards, they need to be shooters. He is not that.

I would argue he has the potential of other top prospects but as of right now he is very raw with a lot to learn. Honestly i could see him slide out of the top 6

Why not an all Ball/ Holiday backcourt??

Lonzo/ Aaron / LaMelo

Jrue/ Justin /

1. presumes pels get into top from lottery.

2. no thanks. pick someone who can shoot.

theres a 6 8" brazilian on barcelona who can actually play basketball. hes not a #### project. leandro balmaro. mock has him going to celtics. ainge knows.

learned pg skills. then grew. can actually stop and pop jumpers. can dribble like a pg and gets to the rack like curry or klay.

f### lamelo. no way.

Good thread. I would give up a good rookie season shooting percentage.... Ole Freddy V can take care of that anyway.... To have a couple core pieces have true chemistry from the start. Melo wouldn't be coming to take jrue's spot year 1 anyway

re: Would you like Lamelo Ball to be a Pelican?
I’d rather just trade him or trade the pick we’d be able to get him at. Dude plays no defense, shot needs tweaking. We don’t need another facilitator

He also just seems like the tyoe that’s would bail on us the moment he’s able to for LA

you start with the pick in hand the day after the lottery.

memphis would probably move josh jackson. he was 4th overall. seems to have righted the ship. looks like a complete player.
you would know after the playoffs if they hold off pels for 8th.

funny, although 2 balls are better than one, i wouldn't mind a vet instead of more youth.
