Zion could be the Pelicans’ path 2019 NBA Mock Draft: Zion 2 days ago   06:44

ESPN
Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Pelicans general manager David Griffin hopes to convince Anthony Davis to stay in New Orleans with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft, presumably using the top pick to select Zion Williamson. Woj adds that Davis still wants to leave, so the Pelicans could make a trade to rebuild.

What is it with those ESPN analysts screaming in the mic non stop? That guy on the left, SAS..

Title should of been Griffin believes he can keep AD to pair with Zion! Come on ESPN don’t be fake news (cnn) get it right!

lakers @ #4 draft they should select either of the caliber rookie like:
•rui hachimura - a close to giannis playing style,
•garland - a pure shooter
•reddish - a kawhi version
•tacko fall or bol bol - bigmen
Kyrie Irving
If Zion turns out like Andrew Wiggins I’m done with the nba
Conch Boy Animations
If pelicans play their card right can trade Jrue to the bulls for their pick, and come out with Mitchell Robinson, Knox, and maybe DSJ or Mudiay(played pretty well last year) from the Knicks for AD and draft RJ and Zion, but if I’m the Knicks I’d like Jrue and AD, that way all you need to do is focus on KD and if that doesn’t workout then Tobias and Kemba or Butler
Doughboy Lit4Ever
Hurry up late October Zion first game gone be lit just 4 more long months 😭

Just don't trade Anthony Davis. He is more valuable to N.O. They would not get good trade value for him. Kyrie demanding trade did not work out the way he thought it would.
Rashard Stallworth
Dell Demps shouldve resigned DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo and Anthony Davis would be content
Cheap Shot
“If” 😂

Newly named Pelicans clearly now have the basketball world by the nuts....media seems shocked not willing to say it

I will not trade AD to LA.
For_The_Shoe
And all of the big market teams around the league like New York and LA can kiss my ass 🖕🏼🖕🏼

I'm sorry I am testing AD's resolve if KD leaves the Warriors. I would do my best as a GM see if I can roll out there Kemba Jrue Zion Julius and AD and go far in the playoffs which would be a bad look for AD to leave, if he finishes his contract they will be in the new CBA and AD can sign the fir 300mil contract he turns that down I believe his resolve and accept his departure.
Giffond Hall
AD should stay and try to make it work with zion

Lakers trade lonzo ingram hart and the 4th pick to the knicks trade dennis smith jr deandre jordan kevin knox and the 3rd pick to the pelicans and lakers get Anthony Davis and Solomon Hill. Pelicans draft Zion with the 1st pick and Rj with the 3rd pick.
Dan Customer
Let him go Anthony Davis just a big cry baby ! He doesn't want to be there. we seen it happen with a player in Cleveland, we seen it happen with a player in San Antonio, it's just bad news for the locker room let the cry-baby go !

The NBA is rigged Golden State doesn't get a chance at Zion? How unfair is that stupid rule? We definitely could use Zion look at how Boogie cousins got hurt we need more depth 😒 we need RJ and Zion on the bench... and if things don't work out with LeBron and the Lakers we'll take him for the practice squad to help develop the younger players... then we'll hire Phil Jackson as the janitor .. Harden doesn't look happy he probably would like to reunite with KD so he can win for a change he can play behind cook until he learns how to close games out 😂
jliveslife
Zion they just pull a Kobe and refuse to go😂 he deserves a real team with the real front office
Manuel Garza
I really do hope the kid does all well in his career, but like I said on another video the only way I see his talent get put the use to be that transcending player AD will have to stay or it's rebuild time and without a bonified "Center" with a good PG and very good 3 point shooters he will suffer down there! I vote for the "Stay AD" campaign!👍👍
Amir Hassan
Zion and AD THEY SCARED OF WHAT YALL WILL BE TOGETHER 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆
