Zion Williamson Has Declared For The 2019 NBA Draft

Zion Williamson Has Declared For The 2019 NBA Draft

Williamson was named the Oscar Robertson Player of the Year as well, joining Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant as the only freshman to win the award.

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

While Williamson is expected to be taken with the No. 1 overall pick, he doesn't know where he'll be playing next season. The power forward averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per contest while shooting 68.0 percent from the field, 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 64.0 percent from the free-throw line.

The Atlanta Hawks are the only other team with better than 10 percent odds at getting the No. 1 pick. He then finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds in their second-round matchup with Central Florida, 23 points against Virginia Tech in the Sweet 16 and 24 points and 14 rebounds in their loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight.

Will Duke retire Zion Williamson's No. 1 and hang it in the rafters of Cameron Indoor Stadium?

His teammates, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish, both declared for the NBA Draft earlier this month.

While the records and accomplishments Williamson set this year may go unmatched for quite awhile in Durham, one question still remains.

The world finds out where Williamson will very likely start his National Basketball Association career on May 14 for the NBA's Draft Lottery.
