Zion Williamson on New Orleans: I do want to be here

- by

Speaking to reporters, Zion Williamson was asked if opening the camp was a sign he wanted to stay in New Orleans. “I do want to be here. That’s no secret. I feel like I’ve stood on that when I spoke,” Williamson said to reporters at the Dryades YMCA in New Orleans. “Currently, this does not really have anything to do with that. This is just me wanting to be a pillar in my community.”

With New Orleans in the midst of an especially violent year, Lee Anderson, Zion Williamson’s stepfather, spoke out against violence in “our city.”

New Pelicans mailbag!
— How should the Pelicans structure Zion Williamson’s extension?
— How much ‘Point Zion’ will we see next season?
— A Convo I had with Willie Green last year that may indicate how Zion will be used

More on this storyline

The Post has learned the Bulls are continuing to do their research on Mitchell Robinson ahead of the July 1 free-agency period. The Bulls could be the main competitors for Robinson if the Knicks don’t lock him up to a contract extension on June 30. The Bulls want to enhance their interior defense and believe Robinson could be a good fit slotted alongside offensive center Nikola Vucevic. Chicago reportedly has $49 million in cap space but that’s before they commit to free agent Zach Lavine — if they do commit. -via New York Post / June 11, 2022
