LaMelo Ball: Career Stats, Net Worth, Salary, and Endorsements

LaMelo Ball’s scouting reports would indicate that this young player may have the perfect build for the modern point guard. He is 6’6″ and can contribute on either side of the floor. Ball is a gifted ball-handler and almost ambidextrous in his passing ability. He is easily one of the best passers to enter the Draft in a while. LaMelo is also a great rebounder and a versatile defender.

He is a scoring threat from anywhere on the floor, including the deep three-point range. However, his efficiency as a scorer has suffered due to extremely poor and immature shot selection. He is projected as a top-five pick who could end up being a franchise player.

LaMelo Ball NBA Draft

LaMelo Ball will enter the NBA Draft as one of the top-five prospects available. He is one of the most likely selections for NBA Draft Lottery winners, Minnesota Timberwolves, who have the number one overall pick.

Ball is also linked with teams like Golden State Warriors and the Charlotte Hornets, who have picks 2 and 3. However, there is a chance that Ball falls low in the draft, as people have been reporting that his interviews haven’t been going well.

He was one of the few players along with James Wiseman and Cole Anthony to be included in NBA 2K20 despite not being an NBA player. He will be added to NBA 2K21 after he gets drafted.

LaMelo Ball Net Worth

LaMelo Ball is still very young and is yet to sign even his first NBA contract. There are no exact figures on what his net worth is, but LaMelo actually skipped playing college basketball. As a result, Ball was paid for his efforts with the Illawarra Hawks in the Australian NBL.

Ball and fellow 2020 Draft prospect R.J. Hampton made about $500,000 during their time down under. However, Ball also signed a deal with PUMA which could be valued up to $100 million.

LaMelo Ball Puma Deal

The Ball family are known for their shoes. LaMelo did not follow his brother Lonzo Ball in joining their father’s Big Baller Brand. LaVar Ball has set an example for what a basketball parent should and shouldn’t do. Forcing your children to play NBA basketball in sub-standard shoes is a definite no.

LaMelo signed a deal with almost $100 million with Puma, which also gives him access to a private jet whenever needed. The length of the contract is unknown.

Puma currently has Kyle Kuzma, Marvin Bagley, Michael Porter Jr, Derrick Jones Jr, DeAndre Ayton, Terry Rozier, Kendrick Nunn, R.J. Barrett, Marcus Smart, and DeMarcus Cousins under contract.
