Draft Notes

The younger brother OKC wing Jalen Williams, Cody is an elite level prospect with all the skills and tools to be a star in the NBA. After a slow start at Colorado he’s coming on strong and starting to dominate on the court, showing why he deserves to be in the top 5 discussion.

He has ideal size on the wing at 6-8 with good length, allowing him to play above the rim with ease and impact the game on both ends. He’s an excellent ball handler, driver and finisher who can go left or right and finish over length.

Cody is a solid rebounder and defender who can guard 1-4 and is a good shot blocker for a wing.

Is great with the ball in his hands; can run the offense, set up teammates and create offense for himself. Has a good first step and likes to get downhill and attack the rim. Does a good job of playing with his head up and finding open teammates after collapsing the defense.

His stock is trending up.


Comparisons

  • His game reminds me of Tracy McGrady, although he’s not as explosive vertically.
