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.
