He did look very unhappy. "You never know until it happens"

What are the possibilities if he does withdraw?

If Lebron left Cleveland to join Wade and Bosh, why can Zion act according to his rights?

Does anyone have a screen cap? Did he really look that unhappy?

Except morally, what is the justification that is better for him to enter this year's draft?

He should genuinely consider it.

That would be unprecedented if that happened. If I had to put money on it, I would bet he will be playing in the NBA next season.

What would he do? Go back to college for another year? No, can't see it. Too risky.

He did not seem happy or comfortable in his post draft interview. Was calm and collected before the draft when he should have been nervous and then looked ill and said he was nervous afterwards. Pretty obvious and weird I thought. Felt bad for the Pels when I saw that. But no he won't withdraw lol.

Too risky as well to play for the Pelicans. See Anthony Davis.

Shaq started it. Then Lebron made the power to shift.
We have Kyrie, Kawhi and PG.

They Porzingis on his rookie contract made it work.

Now it is time for Zion on his pre NBA career to change how the system work.

Sacrifice financial security (and a lot of money on top of that) for the chance (no security here whatsoever) to get drafted by a better team/franchise (but maybe even a worse one) ?

Poor guy will be stuck in NOLA for at least seven years (he won't turn their first extension of course)

It's okay Zion. NY will still be waiting for you in 2026!

So they can trade him to NOP for Davis on a sign and trade.
