Hits: 4

Projected No 1 draft pick Zion Williamson will be represented by CAA Sports.

The agency announced their partnership with Williamson, who has played one season of college basketball at Duke Blue Devils, on Thursday.

CAA will be charged with navigating Williamson through various endorsement deals, including what is expected to be one of the largest shoe contracts ever.

“In my lifetime, I think it’s going to be the biggest bidding war ever done,” Sonny Vaccaro, a former marketing executive with Nike, Adidas and Reebok, told ESPN last month. “I would put them all on go.”

With CAA, Brown, who played college basketball at DePauw, represents a number of NBA players, including Brooklyn Nets guard D’Angelo Russell.

The New Orleans Pelicans are expected to select Williamson – named the NCAA Player of the Year – as the No 1 overall pick of the June 20 draft.

In the 2018-19 season, the 6-foot-7 forward played in 33 games for the Blue Devils, averaging 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while shooting 68 percent from the field.
