Duke star Zion Williamson has officially declared for the NBA draft.
The AP National Player of the Year and men's Wooden Award winner, who is projected to be the No. 1 pick in June, made the announcement Monday night on Instagram.
Williamson, a 6-foot-7, 285-pound forward, averaged 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds as a freshman for the Blue Devils, who lost in the Elite Eight to Michigan State in the NCAA tournament.
The 18-year-old Williamson, who lit up the college basketball world with explosive dunks, highlight-reel blocks and impressive stat lines, has said he "would love" to play for the Knicks if they draft him.
"Whatever NBA team I land on, that's where I want to be," he said earlier this month.
The Knicks finished the season with a 17-65 record, worst in the NBA, and have a 14 percent chance at landing the No. 1 pick in the draft lottery next month. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns also have a 14 percent chance.
No matter what, the Knicks are assured of landing a top-five pick.
When the lottery takes place on May 14, former No. 1 pick Patrick Ewing will represent the Knicks, hoping they land the No. 1 pick again and win the Williamson sweeptstakes.
