There are some scenarios where Zion Williamson might not go first in next month’s NBA Draft, but almost everyone expects him to be.

Over at, Kyle Boone takes a look at how he’d fit on every team in the lottery along with their odds of winning the rights to choose him and how he would fit.

We’ll know in a few days - the lottery draw is on the 14th - and if it were up to us, we’d like to see him fall to Dallas, Atlanta, Philly (wow), Minnesota where he could move from being teammates with Tre Jones to brother Tyus, or, just for fun, L.A., where he could learn a lot from LeBron James.

The downside is that historic franchise is a mess and you can’t put a price on being on a well-managed team.
