Zion Williamson spoke profusely about his joy of playing at Madison Square Garden following his first NBA game at the venue. Williamson also played at MSG while with Duke.
“I think it’s something to watch down the road,” said Adrian Wojnarowski. “I think if you follow Zion Williamson closely, he doesn’t just talk to talk. He’s pretty particular in what he says and when he says it.
“He’s a long ways away from free agency. He’s only in his second year in the NBA. But I think the way the Knicks have been rejuvenated, I don’t think it was completely by accident. At the beginning of that clip, he said ‘Hey, I’m glad you asked that.’ He was clearly waiting for that question. Something to watch down the road.”
Williamson cannot become a restricted free agent until 2023 and an unrestricted free agent until 2024.
Williamson is averaging 26.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists this season.
