Noise while braking and turning right

I've noticed a grinding type of noise while braking and turning right, not remotely close to full lock and coming from the right side of the vehicle. I'm also feeling a lot of slack in the braking pressure on the pedal (which I shouldn't with 27,000 miles of little to no trailering or hard braking). Had a new power steering pump installed about 10,000 miles ago.
I'm thinking that the grinding noise could be a bad ball joint? Although I don't see how it's linked to the brake issue, unless it's unrelated. The only other think I can think of is maybe a warped rotor.

Any other suggestions?
