Report: Cavs Now Have Higher Chance of Landing Zion Williamson

1 Min Read

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ chances of landing Duke University phenom Zion Williamson in the 2019 NBA Draft just went up according to a report from Sam Vecenie of The Athletic.

That’s because the Phoenix Suns, who have the same 14 percent chance along with the New York Knicks of landing the No. 1 pick come June, reportedly prefer Murray State star Ja Morant over Williamson.

That would mean that even if the Cavs ended up with the No. 2 pick, they could still end up with Williamson.

Though Williamson is the consensus No. 1 player in the 2019 NBA draft class, Morant is no slouch himself. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 24.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 10.0 assists in his most recent season with the Racers.

Meanwhile, Williamson put up 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in his final season at Duke.
