Latavious Williams

Williams is a prospect, but he's one that developed quickly. He is not much more than an athlete and a rebounder right now, but as long as he does not make too many mistakes, that could well be enough. If he improves his finishing around the basket, and maybe adds a bit of a jumpshot, he could be the next Donnell Harvey.

This is a compliment. Donnell Harvey was all right

2010-06-27

Pick 48: Never one for doing much with the D-League before now, the Miami Heat switch things up as they draft Latavious Williams from the Tulsa 66ers. With this pick, Williams makes history as the first player drafted exclusively out of the D-League. (Mike Taylor was previously drafted after playing in the D-League; however, he had previously played at Iowa State. Badly.)

Williams is a prospect, but he's one that developed quickly. He is not much more than an athlete and a rebounder right now, but as long as he does not make too many mistakes, that could well be enough. If he improves his finishing around the basket, and maybe adds a bit of a jumpshot, he could be the next Donnell Harvey. This is a compliment.

The selection of Williams creates a problem for the panel. They have Bilas as an NCAA expert, and Fran Frascilla as an international expert, but they have no one to talk about the D-League. To be fair, they haven't needed one before. The task of describing Williams to the audience arbitrarily befalls Bilas, who talks about Williams's rebounding, athleticism, underdeveloped offense and movement without the ball. He basically just recapped the highlight montage, but it's accurate, and order is ensured.

Latavious Williams - Williams is something of a project, but he's one that is developing quickly, and has the athleticism and rebounding to contribute in the NBA. Even if it's only as the next Darvin Ham.

Latavious Williams (48th pick, 2010)

- Williams is into his second season as a Tulsa 66er, and has improved upon the first. In 40 games with 22 starts, Williams has recorded 12.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game, shooting 63% from the field and 76% from the line. The percentages, foul rates, defensive rotations and discipline are all improved from last season, and he's also put some muscle on. Latavious turned 22 this week, and has a chance.
