Duke’s big man will be feeling immense pressure from all sides coming into the NBA draft. Zion has already spoken about his intentions on playing with the franchise of New York. The Knicks has been craving talent in the of other potential stars not providing a winning record.

Zion Williamson $20 Million
Now it seems an unlikely group has made an official pitch to Zion. Business mogul Master P and Romeo has offered Zion a $20 million shoe deal with MoneYatti. In addition, they have offered a role in an upcoming movie. However, there is one stipulation, the offer would only be valid if Williamson is picked by the Pelicans. They have won the number 1 overall pick.
“I know Zion gonna get a big shoe deal from Nike or Adidas or whatever. We gonna get him a deal just to have to wear shoes outside of basketball.”
“Just to wear it on the side, not in the game, I’m saying $20 [million].”
The baller could potentially be in the upcoming third installment of “I Got The Hook-Up 3”. The sequel to the original series will be released later this summer. At the moment Zion has yet to sign an agent that will handle his sponsorship contracts. Companies such as Roc Nation, Klutch Sports, and others are looking to sign the athlete. At the moment everything is in the air regarding where he will land.
