Zion Williamson has been hailed as the next big thing in the NBA, but his colleagues in the incoming rookie class aren’t sold on the idea that the No. 1 overall pick will have a great NBA career.
In the league’s annual survey of rookies, players were asked which member of the 2019 class would have the best career. Williamson received only 5% of the votes.
It was the sixth straight year that a Duke player finished first in the category, with Reddish following in a line that includes Jabari Parker (2014), Jahlil Okafor (2015), Brandon Ingram (2016), Jayson Tatum (2017) and Wendell Carter Jr. last season.
The survey was posted Monday on NBA.com.
