Zion Williamson Declares For 2019 NBA Draft

NBA mock draft 2019 Where Zion Williamson other stars will be picked

Duke Blue Devils freshman Zion Williamson announced his decision to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft on Monday.

Zion will likely be the No. 1 pick in the upcoming National Basketball Association draft, a pick the Knicks and their fans would love to land in the National Basketball Association draft lottery on May 14 in Chicago. Williamson formally revealed his intentions in an Instagram post.

In 33 games for Duke this season, Zion Williamson was a man among boys.

The 18-year-old freshman averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.8 blocks per game on an absurd 68 percent field goal shooting.

Williamson was the AP Player of the Year, Naismith Award victor and Wooden Award victor among his many accolades this season.

The Atlanta Hawks are the only other team with better than 10 percent odds at getting the No. 1 pick.

The NBA Draft Lottery is just less than a month away (May 14) and the draft will take place in June. That will determine which team gets the No. 1 overall pick.

While the records and accomplishments Williamson set this year may go unmatched for quite awhile in Durham, one question still remains. The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns have the best shot, each with a 14% chance.
