Zion Williamson is getting ready to make his NBA debut. Pelicans’ Executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin talked about the number one draft pick.

Griffin called Williamson ‘not normal’ due to his physical abilities, as reported by ESPN’s Baxter Holmes:

“He’s not normal,” Griffin says. “So finding stasis with Zion is the challenge, because he’s 19 years old. He’s still growing. It’s not going to be about a number. It’s going to be about metrics of flexibility and strength and control and all of the different things that we can measure that really are outside of weight.”
