Michael Jordan has "given his stamp of approval" for the Charlotte Hornets to select LaMelo Ball at No. 3 if he's available and the team keeps the pick. While Ball is considered by some to be best prospect in the draft, he would be an awkward fit for both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors.

There have also been discussions of the Hornets moving up to No. 1 to select James Wiseman.

Charlotte is no longer believed to be seriously considering Onyeka Okongwu at No. 3.
