@TheNBACentral
The New Orleans Pelicans have been unable to put together the right elements to make Zion Williamson and his family happy, per
@TheAthleticNBA


"Multiple sources have told The Athletic that certain family members want Williamson on another team."

Recalling when Zion Williamson left the NBA bubble for an "urgent family medical matter," two sources said there was an issue but questioned the urgency to leave.

I really do hope he leaves if for no other reason than to shake up the salary scales. Glenn Robinson created a ruckus in the 90s when he held out as a rookie. KG caused another disturbance in the force when he signed for $127 in 1997 while barely having played two season out of high school That was a catalyst for the 99 lockout. Hopefully Zion will shake things up again. The current CBA is such a clusterfvck.

Zion Williamson told us that he and RJ Barrett have discussed teaming up in the NBA a lot.

I’ve been talking about it in the playoff discussion thread this end of the season is W I L D

Speaking of wild it’s hilarious that a basically rookie who hasn’t accomplished anything in the league yet is in a position to make demands. Like

Smart guy.

I almost or did post a while ago, the Pelicans are on their path to wasting another superstar. Zion is just cutting to the end quickly.

Move him on, I hate seeing great players wasted as a fan.

It's the economics of the market, unique ability in a demand position.

As a basketball fan all you want is to see players on the best stage. All player should want to go to an organization that can give them the best chance on the court.

Bit of an exaggeration and the title is misleading. Zion has done nothing but say he sees a bright future with the team and he wants to be there. It also says family members, but that could literally be a 5th cousin. His dad went on record as say he and Zion spoke about playing for New Prleans BEFORE the draft lottery. I think they’ve blown it all out of proportion tbh.

The Pelicans. They’re never make Zion for AD straight up. Much less giving picks back. Better be ready to come up with several more picks to send WITH ad

Missed most of rookie year. Just getting started 2nd year.... "Man this sh*t ain't working out. Need a change of scenery."

Most dudes grab their first big extension before making noise. Mt. Zion doing it differently. Is it because his team thinks his rookie contract makes it more flexible to get to where he wants to go? New York?
