We’ll have more stuff throughout the day but for now here are a couple of cool links to focus on:

First, well it’s not really cool but Zion Williamson is being countersued by Gina Ford’s Prime Sports Marketing. At issue is a contract Williamson signed and now would like to get out of. His attorneys are arguing that the contract can be voided because, they maintain, it is in violation of NC state law.

Second, Zion Williamson told New York that they were getting a great player in RJ Barrett:

“He’s cold-blooded. We’ve all seen it this year. Assassin... New York, I’ve heard how hostile New York can be with the players. But I think R.J. is ready for it. They’ll get a great player [if they take him]. … If RJ gets drafted by New York, he’ll handle it. Not just good, but great. Better than people expect. He’s built for people doubting him, telling him he’s not ready. I don’t doubt RJ in the slightest.”

And third, check out Zion explaining that he’s not playing for the money. He’ll take it of course. But he says that’s not his motivation.

New Orleans is going to love this guy.
