Rodney Williams

Williams is an almost perfect athletic specimen for the small forward position, who wasn't doing an awful lot with these gifts until his junior season, when he broke out. He then completely stagnated if not regressed as a senior and was back to his intriguing yet frustrating norm. Williams averaged 10.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game last year for Minnesota, but is more Paul Harris than Justin Holiday. Put simply, he can't dribble or shoot. If he gets to the rim, it's in transition, straight-line drives, dive cuts or the occasional post-up - there's no hesitation move, spin moves, tight handle, pull-up jumper, or any other nuanced facet of a driving game. Defensively, it's almost all there, but he needs more.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
