Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, RJ Barrett expected to go 1-2-3 in draft

Zion Williamson

The top of the 2019 NBA Draft appears to be finalized hours before the draft takes place.

Zion Williamson has long been expected to go No. 1 overall, while the Grizzlies have been tied to Ja Morant ever since winning the No. 2 pick in the lottery. RJ Barrett has also been expected to be picked by the Knicks at No. 3.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Thursday that those picks are already set, meaning the mystery won’t begin until the New Orleans Pelicans pick at No. 4.

Players like Darius Garland, Coby White, and De’Andre Hunter have been mentioned as potential picks at No. 4. New Orleans also has been interested in trading that pick.

The real fun will begin with that fourth pick.
