After all the talk of RJ Barrett getting traded to New Orleans to be reunited with Zion Williamson, the former Blue Devil said he plans to recruit Williamson to join him in New York: “Hopefully, one day we’ll be on the same team. That’s my brother, I’ll try and recruit him over,” Barrett said on the Michael Kay Show.

Didn’t go over so well in New Orleans where he was accused of tampering. But he can’t: he hasn’t signed a contract yet and is not officially a Knick. It’s nice to see they’d like to reunite someday though.
