Zion Williamson Rumors
Jim Eichenhofer: Zion Williamson after #SummerPelicans practice: “(In #NBA), everybody can shoot. You can’t really help (defensively) too much, otherwise it’s an open three. I love the spacing. It’s almost like a dream come true for me. Because every time I attack the basket, there is space.”
The group will play its first summer league game on Friday against Pelicans rookie and No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson. Barrett said he laughed when he found out his first game would be against his former Duke teammate. “It’s funny that my first game ever in a uniform is against my guy so, just really excited to play,” he said. Barrett said his first Summer League practice was “high intensity” and “a lot of fun.” “I was just really trying to learn. That’s really what I came in for,” he said.
