Duke commit Zion Williamson is already thinking ahead to NBA career

Duke has earned a reputation as a one-and-done factory and their latest prized commit appears to be the next in line.

Zion Williamson, the No. 2 player in the Class of 2018, told ACC Diehards reporter Tyler Dragon that he’s considering declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft after his freshman season at Duke.

The opportunity will definitely present itself for Williamson at Duke, who started four players (Marvin Bagley, Wendell Carter, Trevon Duval, Gary Trent Jr.) projected to be selected in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound small forward averaged 37 points and 13 rebounds per game last season for Spartanburg Day School in South Carolina.

Williamson wowed the crowd with some sick jams to win the McDonald’s All-American slam dunk contest with a high score of 190.

Williamson is competing in the McDonald’s All-American Game on Wednesday night.

It sounds like Duke fans better enjoy next season with Williamson because chances are his stay in Durham will be short.
