While everyone expects Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson to declare for June’s NBA draft, he is not yet ready to make it official.
“I mean, it’s obviously a high chance that I’m obviously going to enter the draft,” Williamson said after Duke’s loss to Michigan State on Sunday. “I’m not going to make it official because it’s something I have to talk to my parents about.”

If, or rather, when Williamson does declare for the draft, he’ll become the heavy favorite to go No. 1 overall. It’s also been assumed that Williamson’s freshman teammates, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish, will also declare for the draft, and it’s possible all three could go in the top five picks.
