Scouting Report:

Zion Williamson is an explosive athlete, whose dunking ability rivals some of the most legendary dunkers in high school basketball history. The internet sensation has all the tools to translate his game to the next level, but the biggest questions surrounding Williamson are around his ability to make an open jumper. The elite forward has a bulldog mentality when attacking the rim and is an underrated passer as well, however he has yet to develop a consistent outside jumper, shooting just 5-26 in his 7 games at Adidas Uprising this summer. Williamson’s game may be the most exciting to watch at this level, however the question is how will his approach to the game translate and evolve at the next level? I would love to see him in Coach Cal’s system in a similar role to Julius Randle a few years back where Williamson can dominate attacking the rim.
