NBA fans will get a pretty good look at Zion Williamson when the New Orleans Pelicans take part in NBA Summer League action.

According to Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry, Williamson will likely play 24-28 minutes in the team’s summer league opener against the New York Knicks.

While the summer league isn’t always a great representation of the competition rookies will be facing once the season starts, it is still an NBA philosophy and style of play. Williamson himself is very eager to embrace that style of play, so Friday’s opener will be good for him from that standpoint.

Watch: Pelicans’ Zion Williamson steals ball, throws down ferocious dunk Just a few minutes into his NBA Summer League debut, New Orleans Pelicans star rookie Zion Williamson showed everyone just exactly what’s coming to the NBA for years to come with a vicious sequence. After the New York Knicks grabbed the rebound, Williamson ripped the ball and soul out of Kevin Knox’s hand and flung him to the ground in a single motion. Williamson then went up and slammed in a ferocious dunk then stared at Knox to let him know that the star rookie is here to stay.

This is also great news for those who will be in attendance for the summer league opener, considering how much money people have been shelling out for a glimpse at Williamson.
