ESPN Panel ranks Knicks 5th among lottery teams in likelihood to fulfill Zion’s promise

An ESPN panel ranked the 14 lottery teams on how likely they are to help Zion Williamson reach his superstar ceiling. I braced for the Knicks to be ranked near the bottom, but perhaps a subtle sign of perception change, they ranked 5th.

Williamson would be walking into a clean slate with the Knicks,” Bobby Marks writes. “Without a starting power forward, head coach David Fizdale can use Zion either at small-ball 5 or next to Mitchel Robinson. Despite a bare roster, New York has one thing other teams in the lottery do not: $70 million in room to build a roster around Williamson.”
