Zion Williamson Enjoys Chatter Of Being Potential Top 2019 NBA Draft Pick

Duke star Zion Williamson knows that there’s hype around him. In high school he was the subject of a Sports Illustrated story and had a viral highlight reel.

Duke’s Zion Williamson Likes Draft Rumors

Now he’s playing in front of 9,000 people every night. But even though he’s got any NBA team to choose from, he’s not playing favorites.

“My college classmates let me know a lot,” Williamson told reporters Monday. “They’re like, ‘Zion, the Bulls want you, man. Like, come here.’ I’m like, ‘You don’t know that. You’re in college.’ They’re like, ‘Come to Cleveland, come to L.A.’ I’m like, ‘Whoever wants me, that’s where I want to be at.'”

Williamson was asked if he had any destination in mind that he wanted to go to. He shut that down immediately, saying that he doesn’t really have time between school and the Blue Devils’ season to watch NBA games. But he’s not completely out of the loop. “I do see a lot of people on Twitter saying stuff like that,” Williamson said. “It just cracks me up.” No word on if he’s aware of the #tankforzion trend in Madison Square Garden or out in Chicago.

A handful of teams around the league have given up any hopes of winning and instead are bottoming out for the chance to draft him. Though he’s got no say in what team drafts him, it’s hard to imagine that he’d be selected by a team he explicitly says he doesn’t want to play for. Rather than becoming a chemistry issue, Zion showed wisdom beyond his ages and said that he’ll play for whoever drafts him.

Already an amazing prospect, this diplomatic response from an 18-year-old with the world at his fingertips is just another reason for why he’s going to go No. 1 overall come June 20. He’s got an NBA-ready game and an unbelievably developed frame on top of that.

Duke will take on St. John’s on Saturday at noon EST. Williamson is averaging 22 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2 blocks,\ and 2 steals per game this season.
