The Knicks may have lost out on the Zion Williamson sweepstakes, but the man they drafted instead believes he could one day lure him to New York.
Knicks' first-round draft pick RJ Barrett, who was Williamson's teammate at Duke, said on The Michael Kay Show Monday that he hopes to one day play together with Williamson.
"Hopefully, one day we'll be on the same team," Barrett said. "That's my brother, I'll try and recruit him over."
Barrett and Williamson were among two of the top recruits in the nation while at Duke and developed a close friendship with each other.
They failed to win a national championship together, though, falling to Michigan State in the Elite Eight.
Perhaps they can accomplish that feat together in the NBA, but it would have to be a few years when Williamson would be eligible for free agency before anything of the sort could happen.
If both live up to expectations over the next few years, a potential reunion would certainly be a dream scenario for the Knicks.
