Scottie Pippen calls Duke’s Zion Williamson the best NBA prospect since Michael Jordan

Sporting News

Scottie Pippen thinks highly of Zion Williamson.

The Bulls legend was asked about the forward's potential on ESPN's The Jump. He responded by calling Williamson the best NBA prospect since Michael Jordan.

"I think he's going to be a different player. I think he's going to be a game-changer. And we're going to see something special out of this kid," Pippen said.

Williamson, a 6-foot-7 forward, is averaging 22 points and 9.2 rebounds in his freshman season with the Blue Devils. He is shooting a staggering 68.1 percent from the floor. Despite weighing 285 pounds, Williamson is one college basketball's most explosive athletes. Pippen thinks this will be a huge help at the next level.
