Pelicans land No. 1 pick

The New Orleans Pelicans have won the 2019 NBA draft lottery and, more importantly, the Zion Williamson sweepstakes.

The overwhelming favorite to be drafted No. 1 overall and lauded as one of the best NBA prospects since LeBron James, Williamson could head to a team that has been exploring trades for superstar center Anthony Davis, who is heading into the last year of his deal.


The Pelicans had a 6 percent chance of winning the lottery.

"I think it's just another positive event for us in what we hope is going to be several we stack together," David Griffin, the Pelicans new executive vice president of basketball operations, said moments after the No. 1 pick was revealed. "I think Mrs. Benson and her ownership group have invested in this very heavily. And my presence there and my desire to be there had everything to do with this community. So I'm really excited for our fanbase, and we've got a lot of work to do, but this is a good start."
