Richard Jefferson is having none of this 'Zion could return to Duke' nonsense

The New Orleans Pelicans unexpectedly won the No. 1 pick in the draft — sending New York Knicks fans to tears — and the rights to draft Duke superstar Zion Williamson. The Pelicans had a six percent shot at winning the lottery, lower odds than the Knicks and Chicago Bulls. The Knicks were reportedly Williamson's preferred landing spot and so much was made of his reaction to the lottery results.

How potential Knicks' package for Anthony Davis could compare to what Celtics, Lakers offer

Only Pelicans executive VP of Basketball Operations David Griffin - and maybe a select few others close to him - knows exactly what New Orleans wants in a potential Anthony Davis trade. Griffin reiterated on Tuesday that he's committed to trying to keep Davis in New Orleans. Landing the No. 1 overall pick in June gives him another potential selling point for Davis, but the smart money says he will still want to leave New Orleans.

New York Daily News trolls Knicks' lottery failure with hilariously perfect Zion backpage

Tuesday night was not a good night to be a New York Knicks fan.

Lakers get lucky, vault to No. 4 pick in NBA Draft Lottery

At least on Tuesday night, it was better to be lucky than good. Entering the draft lottery in Chicago with just the 11th-best odds at a top-four pick (9.4 percent), the ping pong balls favored the Lakers, vaulting them to the fourth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. After a disappointing 37-45 season in the first season of the LeBron James era, the Lakers’ pick represents a valuable asset – and potentially a promising star – for a franchise that has struggled for the past six seasons. The Lake...

Would the Knicks consider trading Zion Williamson if they land the top pick?

The NBA draft lottery is nearly upon us, and all eyes are on Duke phenom Zion Williamson. Whichever team gets the No. 1 pick will almost certainly pick him, and it could change the entire direction of a franchise. You would assume that Zion would change a franchise by just playing for them, but apparently that's not the only option on the table.

Reports: If Knicks get No. 1 pick, they'd try to trade it for Anthony Davis

But for New York, Anthony Davis – not Williamson – might be the real prize.

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News: Considering contract status – Williamson set to begin a four-year rookie-scale deal then hit restricted free agency, Davis only one season from unrestricted free agency – the No.

Was Loss to Warriors Houston’s Last Chance at a Title?

When the Houston Rockets got ready for game six of their Western Conference semifinal series with the Golden State Warriors, their goal was to extend the series to seven games against an injured and struggling Warriors team.

Against long odds, Lakers could get a boost from a draft lottery bounce

For the past season, the Lakers and luck have been poor bedfellows. When it comes to injuries, fate has been disproportionally unkind: from groin tears to broken hands to sprained ankles to pneumonia and even a blood clot. The Lakers were hit hard on their way to a second-half slide in which they finished 17-31 after LeBron James’ injury on Christmas day. If the same strings that guide such misfortunes also have some influence on the thousand ping-pong balls that will be bouncing in the NBA Draf...
