The New Orleans Pelicans surprised last night, winning the draft lottery, while also clearing their path to select Zion Williamson.
But will Williamson even play for the Pelicans when they select him? ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said it’s a possibility he could threaten a return to Duke.
“He does have some options. I’m not saying he’s going to pick these options, but he has not signed with an agent and he has not signed a shoe deal yet,” Windhorst explained. “He could threaten to go back to Duke.”
What an absolute NBA shocker that would be. Zion threatening to return to Duke to avoid playing for the Pelicans? It’s Eli Manning all over again.
However, it seems very unlikely that Zion would even consider going down that road.
But this is the NBA, there’s always a surprise and some sort of drama every single offseason.
So we can’t count out the madness right?
