1. Longevity

Wherever Zion Williamson lands in the 2019 NBA Draft will, in all likelihood, change the fortunes of one team for at least five or seven years. Zion could be the type of game-changing talent that takes a team like the Chicago Bulls to new heights in the East.

Without looking back, Zion could reach a superstar level by averaging at least 20 points per game, 8.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists with his skill set and offensive tools. Back at Duke, Williamson averaged 22.6 points per game, 8.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists.

Developing more as a facilitator and three-point shooter would make Zion one of the most lethal players in the NBA today. Those are two of his biggest faults that he showed in his true freshman campaign at Duke. He attempted less than 75 three-pointers, despite taking a lot of field goal attempts in general.

Next. Pre-Lottery 2019 NBA Mock Draft. dark

The hope is there that the Bulls could get Zion and turn him into at least a somewhat competent three-point shooter. He was around a 34 percent shooter from beyond the arc on those slightly under 75 attempts at Duke. Finding that in his game also brings longevity to the table with the way the game is played in the NBA today.
