Duke’s Zion Williamson declares for the NBA Draft

17 April 2019

Duke forward and the overwhelming favorite to go No. 1 in the 2019 NBA Draft Zion Williamson declared for the draft on Monday.

Williamson announced his decision on Instagram. He was named the ACC Player of the Year, AP Player of the Year, NABC Player of the Year, College Player of the Year by Sporting News.

In a hype video reminiscent of the one Barrett dropped, Zion explains how thankful he was to play for the Duke Blue Devils and how he's excited to move onto the National Basketball Association.

With Williamson officially heading to the pros, the conversation now turns to who will get the No. 1 overall pick.

Bill Weld: Trump to face 2020 Republican challenge
The move by Mr Weld makes Mr Trump the first incumbent president since George HW Bush in 1992 to face a notable primary challenge. He briefly entertained a run for president in 1996 before mounting an unsuccessful campaign that year to unseat Democratic Sen.

Williamson joins his teammates and fellow freshmen R.J.

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.

With the qualifier of 22 points and eight rebounds per game as a freshman while being a first-round NBA Draft prospect, Williamson joins Beasley, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant.

It's something that many fans, analysts, and even former Duke players have called for, but under the rules Duke sets for retiring numbers, Williamson passes all the criteria except staying for four years and graduating.
