    There will apparently be two Ball brothers in the NBA during the 2020-21 campaign.

    On Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported LaMelo Ball declared for the 2020 NBA draft after he played for the Illawarra Hawks of the Australian NBL for one season. Charania noted Ball was included in the "professional" category of the list of early entry candidates that NBA teams received Tuesday.

    Ball's older brother, Lonzo, was the No. 2 overall pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2017 NBA draft and now plays on the New Orleans Pelicans.

    LaMelo appeared in 12 games for the Hawks and averaged an impressive 17.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.6 steals a night but only shot 37.5 percent from the field and 25.0 percent from three-point range.
