Jordan WilliamsHt/Wt: 6-10 / 260 lbs
2011 Draft Profile - Jordan WilliamsWith a dying breed of back to the basket centers Williams is intriguing. He is a late developer and just recently filled out to 6ft10 260lbs, he comes with good hands, and runs the floor well. Jordan is a very strong player and dominated on the glass in the ACC and is an efficient finisher down low, also trails and finishes well in transition. Physically he should match up with NBA bigs right away and at just 20 yrs old could still get bigger and develop more offensively.
Being a late developer Jordan has limited post moves down low and very limited range. He is a below average FT shooter, and lack of feel for the game right now on both ends. I would like to see him be a better shot blocker to go with his rebounding prowess.
Today most prospects focus so much on one on one, and shooting from outside, Jordan is a little against the grain but to win in the NBA you always need a physical and aggressive big man which he is. Sometimes these type of players with his size have injury concerns. I think as long as he stays aggressive and in shape Williams will have value in the NBA, and depending on what team he goes to he could have an impact right away by adding toughness and rebounding. I would like to see him add a couple more back to the basket moves so he can be a 3rd scoring option for his team when on the floor. Starter potential here at center.
