I mean, if you really want to use medicine balls for what they are designed for, the 6-12# range is best. For slamming, something cheap enough that you won't mind replacing when broken unless you want to spend piles of money on a 20# ball you will only use for slamming (see above comment about the weight range for optimal use of a medicine ball). If you want to use it for checking squat depth, Dynamax 20# is still the gold standard.

If I were you, I'd have a sand-filled basketball (or maybe just a few sandbags of varying sizes) and an ~8# medicine ball.
