   2017 NBA Manifesto

Lou Williams
PG/SG, 6’1, 175lbs, 30 years old, 12 years of experience

Absolutely fantastic in a fairly responsibility-free role with the Lakers to begin the season, then returned to Earth somewhat with the Rockets. On the season as a whole, shot 60.8% at the rim and 36.5% from three-point range, not attempting a whole bunch in between, but was very inconsistent with the Rockets, and wasn’t so much a freelance offensive threat as he was an unreliable forcer of the issue. His shooting percentages plummeted, and as always, he contributed little defensively. As a full season of work, it was a good year for Williams. The Rockets just got the lesser third.

Player Plan: One year and $7 million remaining. There will not be resale value going forward, nor has he quite achieved what he was brought in to do. Williams should thus be retained, allowed to shoot, encouraged to pass to the crowd less, and see what happens.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 30th November 2017

Just as the Clippers had begun to turn it around with a three-game winning streak, Blake Griffin hurt his knee in the last minute of their last game and will miss the next two months. In his absence, someone will have to score.

Career reserve Williams is now a starter in light of Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic’s injuries, and his 18.6 points per game average is a career high in his thirteenth season. His 4.0 assists per game is only 0.2 off another career high, too, and with 42.6 and 50.3 fantasy points in his last two games, Williams knows what needs to be done, and will get up as many shoots as is possible. This makes him underpriced.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 20th November 2017

As the Clippers implode around him, Williams is doing his best to stem the tide. He is averaging 17.7 points and 3.4 assists per game, all from the bench, the only guard on the team able to get to the rim and finish regularly. It appears that regardless of the injuries and/or struggles ahead of him, Williams is destined to still always come off the bench, and $16.6 million is a lot for a bench player, even in fantasy. Nevertheless, he is currently performing sufficiently to be worth it.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 10th November 2017

Milos Teodosic has been out for all but the first two games of the year with injury, and now his replacement Patrick Beverley is also out with a sore knee. Furthermore, utility wing Austin Rivers seems also likely to miss tonight with a bad ankle. Therefore, regular shooting guard starter Williams now defaults to being the main point guard for the Clippers until they recover. Williams is not cheap, and while his 14.4 point, 3.3 assist per game averages are quite tidy, they are not especially good fantasy value at this price, especially with very few rebounds or steals to flank them. But add a few assists to that title, as he might now do for a bit, and it could be.
