There’s a lot of hype over where Zion Williamson will end up when he eventually plays in the NBA, but the Duke standout just wants to go where he’s wanted.
“My college classmates let me know a lot,” Williamson told reporters Monday, via WGN TV News. “They’re like, ‘Zion, the (Chicago) Bulls want you, man. Like, come here.’ I’m like, ‘You don’t know that. You’re in college.’ They’re like, ‘Come to Cleveland, come to L.A.’ I’m like, ‘Whoever wants me, that’s where I want to be at.'”
When asked if he has any favorite destinations, Williamson said he doesn’t have much time between school and the Blue Devils’ season to watch NBA games. But he does get a kick out of reading other people’s opinions about it on social media.
“I do see a lot of people on Twitter saying stuff like that,” Williamson said. “It just cracks me up.”
