Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Celebrates NBA Draft With 82-Inch Wingspan Box

With a wingspan of 6 feet and 10 inches, Zion Williamson will nearly certainly be selected by the New Orleans Pelicans as the number one pick in Thursday's much anticipated NBA Draft.

Barrett, a 19-year-old from the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, Ontario, also tallied 22.6 points per game, and played a key role in maintaining the Blue Devils' momentum while Williamson was sidelined by a late-season injury.

The 18-year-old Zion Williamson is nearly universally presumed to be the New Orleans Pelicans' No. 1 draft pick.

On Wednesday, the chicken chain announced it would be launching the Wingspan Box on Thursday to celebrate the National Basketball Association draft.

Hummels returns to Borussia Dortmund
Do you think Hummels can help BVB beat Bayern to the Bundesliga title next season? Now, he's set to return to Borussia Dortmund . After Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Rafinha, Hummels is the latest senior player to leave Bayern in 2019.

The Lakers will make that pick, but it has been traded to New Orleans for Anthony Davis and the Pelicans are shopping that pick to other teams. The Pelicans even posted a compilation of Williamson's Duke highlights on their official website.

Well, that could still be the case, but the Hawks started with the second round Thursday - when they shipped the No. 44 overall selection to the Miami Heat. Meanwhile, the odds of OVER 2.5 global players being selected among the top 30 sits at -155. So, it's wide open and anybody's guess what will happen on Thursday (7 p.m., ESPN).

While the team could subsequently use it as a part of a trade package, one new report indicates that it will keep the pick.
