Zion Williamson hopes to hit the gym with former United States President Barack Obama one day.

The New Orleans Pelicans star named Obama as his dream workout partner in an interview with journalist J.A. Adande for the latest Men's Health cover story, which touches on a variety of topics.

Obama was in attendance for the Duke-North Carolina game last year when Williamson blew out his shoe and wished him a "speedy recovery" on Twitter afterward. Williamson also had the opportunity to meet Obama at an NBA Cares event during All-Star Weekend in February.

"He said I've been playing great and I just kind of zoned out after that," Williamson said of their chat. "I was like, 'That's all I need to hear.'"
