Warriors expected to pass on LaMelo Ball

Not a fan of negative feedback, LaVar has seized any opportunity to shoot back, questioning Kerr’s credentials and lobbying for the Warriors to not draft LaMelo. This is the third in a series of stories looking at players the Warriors might select with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft. League sources told The Chronicle that LaVar will likely get his wish. With less than two months until the draft, the Warriors are believed to be higher on Iowa State point guard Tyrese Haliburton — and perhaps, even French point guard Killian Hayes — than they are on Ball. There are far better odds of Golden State trading back in the draft to a team that covets Ball than of it drafting him for itself.
