Draft Notes

Elijah is the son of former NBA player and NBA head coach Monty Williams. He looks to be on tract to follow his dad’s footsteps to the league.

He’s got a great frame and good athletic ability and also shows a very advanced understanding of the game and basketball instincts (which is no surprise considering his upbringing).

Can really lock-down and get after it on defense.

Moves well without the ball and doesn’t need to dominate the ball to have a big impact.
