Windhorst: Zion Williamson Could Go Back to Duke Somewhat Than Be Drafted by Pelicans

As a New York Knicks enthusiast, Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery was a blur.

Right after months of wishing and praying and hoping for the No. 1 choose in this year’s draft, the Knicks’ time-lengthy tank work proved to be unsuccessful when the ping pong balls identified that the group would be selecting 3rd. 

Irrespective of the Knicks getting a 14 p.c likelihood of selecting 1st in general, it was the Pelicans with their 6 p.c odds that came absent with the appropriate to choose Duke standout Zion Williamson.

When the draft buy was ultimately sorted out, I put in the upcoming hour or two just staring at the ceiling, hoping to convince myself that having Duke’s R.J. Barrett at No. 3 wasn’t so poor. The gradual development from despair to acceptance could best be summed up by that Alonzo Mourning GIF:

When I finally returned to social media, I found that Williamson was also reportedly not much too enthusiastic about the concept of going to the Pelicans.

ESPN’s Marc J. Spears reported that Williamson was “rooting to go to New York.”

But now, Zion is caught in New Orleans. Or is he? All through today’s episode of ESPN’s The Soar, Brian Windhorst floated the idea that Williamson could nonetheless go back again to Duke, in its place of heading into this year’s draft.

“He does have some solutions. I am not saying he’s likely to pick these possibilities, but he has not signed with an agent and he has not signed a shoe offer nevertheless,” Windhorst described. “He could threaten to go again to Duke.”
