Duke’s Zion Williamson Announces His NBA Draft Decision

Williamson was named the Oscar Robertson Player of the Year as well, joining Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant as the only freshman to win the award.

The inevitable has come true and it's time for those dreamers and believers to face the reality, Zion Williamson will no longer be a Duke Blue Devil as he has officially declared for the 2019 NBA Draft. The power forward averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per contest while shooting 68.0 percent from the field, 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 64.0 percent from the free-throw line. Thank you for making this year the best year of my life. Barrett and Cam Reddish in the NBA Draft, as the fourth freshman, Tre Jones, announced that he will be returning to Duke for his sophomore season.

Williamson wasted no time proving at the collegiate level that he was as tantalizing an National Basketball Association prospect as scouts expected him to be prior to the 2018-19 season. The NBA Draft Lottery takes place on Tuesday, May 14, in what will be one of the most anticipated nights of the offseason.

Now, all that needs to be determined is who exactly will be picking first overall. The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns have the best shot, each with a 14% chance.
