Williamson spent his freshman season at Duke, where he dominated the competition with 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.8 blocks per game on 68.0 percent shooting from the field and 33.8 percent from 3-point range.

The Phoenix Suns share the same best-possible odds at the No. 1 pick of 14 percent with the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers.

The NBA Draft is on June 20.
