Still early into his second season, a brief polling of Zion Williamson surveyors verified why excitement has followed him since his early teens.

"If he gets an angle on you going to the basket, it's over. He's already one of the most devastating interior scorers in the league," one scout said.

"Him getting an offensive rebound is like allowing a layup, because he's got one of the best second jumps you'll ever see, and he just goes right back up," another said.

"He's an unselfish player who really looks to be about the right stuff," a third summarized.
