On a day that is largely expected to see Duke forward Zion Williamson get selected first overall by the New Orleans Pelicans, it seems he may have some legal issues to work out first -- Prime Sports Marketing LLC is suing Williamson for $100 million for breaching a contract he signed with them after declaring for the NBA Draft.
The article states that Zion originally signed a five-year contract with Prime Sports but jumped ship after only one month to sign with Creative Arts Agency. Zion, who actually was the first to take legal action, claimed that the contract he signed with Prime Sports was unlawful in North Carolina.
Prime Sports responded with a $100 million lawsuit of its own, which is where we stand, just hours away from the start of the NBA Draft.
Regardless of which direction this story turns, it's not what Williamson wants heading into what should be a memorable day in his athletic career.
