James Borrego says Lamelo Ball ‘is clearly’ the rookie of the year

Ball had 11 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds in last night's victory over the Detroit Pistons

Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego believes LaMelo Ball deserves the rookie of the year award.

“To me, I think he is clearly the rookie of the year. And I think he will prove that over these next 10 games as well. But I think he’s already done enough to get there”.

Ball, the third overall pick of the last NBA Draft, is averaging 15.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.2 assist and 1.6 steals per game, shooting 45% from the field, 37% from beyond the arc and 78% from the foul line.
