Now that the NBA Draft Lottery has been decided and it's been revealed that the New Orleans Pelicans have been granted the number one pick, it's being reported that the player most likely to be selected was hoping that the ping pong balls would send him to New York.

According to ESPN's Marc J. Spears, Zion Williamson wasn't thrilled with the Pelicans good fortune, as he reportedly had told his team that he wanted to play for the Knicks. Sure enough, when New Orleans was announced as the winner of the lottery, the Duke star was "quickly WHISKED out of the room" leaving many to speculate that he's been left disappointed.

Entering the draft lottery, the Pelicans had just a 6% chance of securing the ultimate prize, compared to the Knicks who had a 14% chance and ended up with the third pick.
