Duke star Zion Williamson declares for 2019 NBA Draft

Duke star Zion Williamson declares for 2019 NBA Draft

With Williamson officially declaring, Duke will have to prove it can repeat this season's success with a vastly different cast of characters next season.

Zion Williamson has declared for the 2019 NBA Draft, he today announced on his Instagram.

Williamson hinted at his decision following Duke's 68-67 loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight on March 31, saying that there was a high chance the Blue Devils' squad "will probably never play together again".

Is Nazem Kadri the Next Tom Wilson?
Kadri travelled to NY for an in-person hearing, meaning the league had the option to suspend the player for more than five games. Despite Avery's endorsement, Kadri faces a suspension for the second straight postseason. "Just happy we got the win".

He was the third freshman to win the John R. Wooden Award, while also AP Player of the Year, the Naismith Award and the Karl Malone Award as the nation's top power forward.

The projected No. 1 overall pick called his freshman year, "the best year of (his) life". There are some questions about what position he'll play in the National Basketball Association as he combines the size of a forward (6-foot-7) with the build of a centre (285 pounds), but he's one of the most explosive and powerful prospects we've ever seen.

Williamson, who averaged 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game during his freshman year at Duke, is expected to be the number one pick in the draft, which will be determined on May 14. The Phoenix Suns share the same best-possible odds at the No. 1 pick of 14 percent with the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers.
