Top Prospect Zion Williamson Declares For Draft

Zion Williamson is going to the NBA. More

With his teammates Cam Reddish and RJ Barrett declaring for the NBA draft, it was a surprise to pretty well no one when he announced today that he would be entering the NBA Draft this upcoming season, according to ESPN.

Zion Williamson is officially a college dropout, and for good reason.

In his one spectacular season at Duke, Williamson averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.1 steals, and 1.8 blocks per game while shooting 68.0% from the field and 33.8% from 3-point range.

Williamson thanked a number of people in the video, including coach Mike Krzyzewski, his mother and Duke fans for their support.

While Williamson is expected to be taken with the No. 1 overall pick, he doesn't know where he'll be playing next season.

For months, it had been considered just as many of his terrific highlights - a slam dunk without question - and on Monday evening, Zion Williamson finally made the obvious official.

The world finds out where Williamson will very likely start his National Basketball Association career on May 14 for the NBA's Draft Lottery.

Williamson missed five games during the season with a knee injury after his shoe broke during Duke's highly-anticipated game against rival North Carolina on February 20.

The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns all have a 14 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick to lead the lottery odds.
