If Zion Williamson was a free agent instead of subject to the NBA Draft process and a rookie scale contract, at least one general manager believes he would unquionestably get a max contract.

“Yes,” said a general manager when asked the question. “Way, way more than the max … if allowed.”

The GM also said Williamson would be “A top five asset from Day 1.” 

While he was still in the media, David Griffin called Anthony Davis a top-3 asset in the NBA.
