Zion Williamson gave a young New Orleans Pelicans fan a cool souvenir on Saturday.

After he finished his workout, he signed shoes for a young fan:

The deal included a swap of shoes that was said to have left the fan shoeless:
Zion walked off the court, signed autographs and then traded shoes with a kid.
Zion gave him one of his shoes and then took one of the kids as a part of the deal.
Kid doesn’t have shoes to go home with… but I think he’s okay with that. pic.twitter.com/ULrsPJmuvE

That’s probably a deal anyone would accept.
Williamson, the No. 1 draft pick, has not played since injuring his knee before the season. The Pelicans are taking their time bringing him back and reportedly have even been teaching him to run and walk differently.
