The New Orleans Saints welcomed a few special guests to their sideline, including their new neighbors from right next door: New Orleans Pelicans players Zion Williamson, Jaxson Hayes, and Lonzo Ball.
Williamson was the Pelicans’ top draft pick, selected first overall in this year’s NBA Draft. Hayes was also drafted in the first round, and was spotted wearing a Cameron Jordan jersey inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Ball was one of several players acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Williamson have struck up a friendship early on, thanks as much to proximity (the Saints and Pelicans training facilities share a parking lot) as shared goals.
