Should Sixers Draft Lonzo Ball If They Win Draft Lottery?
Lonzo Ball, despite his father's well publicized antics, is still considered one of the top prospects in the 2017 NBA Draft. In his one season at UCLA, Ball tallied a 55.1 Field Goal shooting percent and had a 5.1 Assist to Turnover Ratio per game. The other top prospect is Markelle Fultz who averaged 23.2 Points Per game and shot 47.6 percent from the Field his one season at Washington. So if the Sixers win the NBA Draft Lottery, who should they pick?
Former NBA Center and current CSN Philly Sixers Analyst Marc Jackson joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and made his choice between the two top prospects:
"I like Fultz but I am a huge (Lonzo) Ball fan…The 76ers are an uptempo team, they get the ball they like to run. Ben Simmons is by far, besides Lebron James, The Get It and Go type of guy. (Simmons) can get it from the rim and can start from one end and get it to the other on a fast break....I think Ball is just tremendous, he uses the floor so well and I think that when teams start doubling Joel Embiid and when teams start forcing the drive and have help side defense, Ball can be a better knock down shooter than Fultz. If I get the #1 pick for the 76ers, I’m drafting Ball from UCLA."
