Everyone in the NBA community has been speculating about Zion Williamson’s thoughts on the New Orleans Pelicans landing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, with some suggesting that he return to Duke for another season.
How does Williamson actually feel about it, though? The former Duke star has yet to officially comment – and he likely won’t, considering the Pelicans haven’t drafted him yet – but we do now have video of his reaction.
ESPN has posted video of Williamson’s live reaction to the Pelicans landing the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Williamson didn’t seem very upset.
The main question for the Pelicans moving forward likely doesn’t have to do with Zion, but rather Anthony Davis.
Davis is reportedly still interested in getting traded, though the Pelicans are reportedly hoping to pair the All-NBA forward with Williamson, along with Jrue Holiday.
New Orleans had a tough 2018-19, but the Pelicans are just a year removed from sweeping the Blazers in the first round of the playoffs.
The Pelicans will be one of the most-exciting teams in the league in 2019-20, whether or not Davis is on the roster.
