Zion isn’t the only Duke star projected to go in the NBA lottery.
Meet RJ Barrett 🔥
RJ Barrett is expected to meet with the Knicks tomorrow in Chicago, per @AdamZagoria
A lot of Duke talent on this set. Also pictured, Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, and Jay Williams.
Knicks get the 3rd pick.
I know Knicks fans don’t want to hear this right now, because they lost out on Zion, but getting a top-3 pick is a win. NY beat the odds to land No. 3.
Knicks will likely draft either Ja Morant or RJ Barrett.
They are getting a stud.
Zion and RJ Barrett being teammates again is a dream come true @PelicansNBA
An RJ Barrett-Frank Ntilikina back court ?
pelicans: we got zion
grizzlies: we got rj barrett
knicks: we got ja morant
every knicks fan should be content with 3. there was a moment there at pick #7 where it was a 66.7% chance NY would fall to 5 let alone win. we'd be BEGGING for RJ Barrett if that didn't go our way. https://t.co/iNpB0YMo2q
Anyway, Knicks. Don’t overthink this. Sign KD. Sign Kyrie. Draft RJ Barrett or Ja Morant. You’re fine.
Rachel Nichols to RJ Barrett: "RJ tell me how it is to have all this talk around Zion Williamson and not yourself at all?"
Knicks fans spent all year photoshopping Zion with a Knicks jersey only to change their profile picture to RJ Barrett tonight. Sad world.
RJ Barrett and Allonzo Trier waiting for each other to pass the ball next season
Imagine if the Pelicans trade Anthony Davis to the Knicks for the #3 overall pick (and other pieces) and pair Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett in New Orleans.
I’ve slandered Rj Barrett all year just for him to be drafted by my Knicks
Knicks fans like "RJ Barrett was always my favorite player in this draft and it's not even close"

1. Pelicans: Zion Williamson
2. Grizz: Ja Morant
3. Knicks: RJ Barrett
4. Lakers: De'Andre Hunter
5. Cavs: Jarrett Culver ...
I’m feeling really good about RJ Barrett. He has a ton of potential, his college stats were 22.6 PPG/4.3 APG/ 7.6 RPG/ 45.4% FG
And he’s only 18 years old!!
Pelicans are about to be Duke 2.0 when the Knicks trade for Anthony Davis with a package centered around #3 overall pick, RJ Barrett.
As a super biased Duke guy, Knicks could get RJ Barrett. He is a stud. He was built for the NBA.
RJ Barrett is going to be the Team Canada RJ Barrett for the #Knicks
Best case? Draft, RJ Barrett and he becomes KD to Zion's Greg Oden. Mitch becomes better than AD, Frank and Knox blossom, Knicks have a drafted core 4 like the Yankees. Worst case, we trade them all for AD, and all of the above happens while AD doesn't pan out.
Hey Dennis Smith Jr and RJ Barrett could be a nice little duo in New York.d
Anyone care how RJ Barrett feels ?
Zion to the Pelicans stinks ... shoulda been RJ Barrett sleepy face down there smh . Talk about a waste of hype for a season.
The dude don't even wanna come down here lol... #ZionSweepstakes ha well hey RJ Barrett welcome to NY buddy #KNICKSTAPE
Rj Barrett will be the best third overall draft pick of all time excluding no player ever.
Knicks lowkey won the draft lottery getting a top 3 pick ..... Ja Morant and Rj Barrett are the more pro-ready options with defined skill sets when comparing to Zion.. 🤷🏾♂️ Both are 𝗙uture all-stars, and probably have better careers
Why on God’s green earth would the pelicans trade arguably the best big man in the world for RJ Barrett.
Prediction.....The New York Knicks will trade their #3 pick(+extra players) for Anthony Davis, giving AD a fresh start in NY. While New Orleans will draft Zion #1 & RJ Barrett #3, giving New Orleans a new dynamic duo to help rejuvenate their franchise.
Doubt its true. Even so he most likely traded to Pelicans for AD anyway. If RJ Barrett is there at #3 I see Knicks trading him and Robinson,Knox,Smith and Mavs picks for AD. Then Zion and RJ are paired up again. Besides Pelicans cans till trade Holiday for some assets as well.
My new favorite thing post nba lottery. Hearing knick fans talk themselves into how great RJ Barrett will be. I ❤️ y’all
If RJ Barrett can be that “James Harden” type player people believe he has the potential to be, then I believe you guys have the better pick.
The Knicks haven't been relevant because their organization is subpar. If NY got what they deserved it would have been #4. Just be lucky RJ Barrett will be on the board.
Calling it now: @nyknicks
draft RJ Barrett, @knicks
orchestrate trade with @PelicansNBA
for AD and NOLA has new future with RJ Barrett and Zion. @knicks
have AD and _________ #WhoKnows #TheyreTheKnicks
They not getting ja so they only looking up rj barrett
New York Knicks franchise mostly screwing up the Carmelo Anthony era and promptly getting rewarded with Kristaps Porzingis only to mostly screw up the Kristaps Porzingis era and promptly get rewarded with RJ Barrett is some nonsense
Out of time.. the fix is in.. lol you’re talking about trading Anthony Davis for rj Barrett and Kevin Knox lol
If knicks fans salty about getting RJ Barrett then the season is already over for y’all
RJ Barrett could be a really good pick for the Knicks. imo he has a higher ceiling than Zion. add Kyrie and KD to that squad and it could be saucy. INJECT IT 💉
Most have Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, and RJ Barrett as their top 3 players going into the #NBADraft.
Who do you have at #4?
@Mike10__ @BleacherReport @PelicansNBA
Still if RJ Barrett is there at #3 Knicks could flip RJ,Robinson,Smith,Knox and a couple Mavs picks for AD. Then Pelicans can still trade Holiday for some assets as well.
RJ Barrett is nothing compared to the greatness of Jeff Green according to lord man bun
The pelicans gonna fuck around and have Zion then get rj barrett from New York
Knox, Robinson, 3rd pick(RJ Barrett), then you have a starting 5 of Holiday Barrett Knox Zion Robinson and let that grow
think I need to go down an RJ Barrett highlight rabbit hole in my near future #SnicksTape
No 🧢 RJ Barrett mite be best player in the Draft 5 years from now ..
