Draft Notes

Patrick Williams is one of the youngest players in the 2020 NBA draft but has as much upside as any forward in this class. He’s a big, strong combo forward with big time potential. His raw talent, versatile defense and powerful transition game are enough to get him a long look in the lottery.

Williams has an NBA frame and a next level combination of agility and power in a big, quick 6-8 225 body.

Williams is a standout defender who does all the dirty work but is also a more than capable iso-scorer and 3pt shooter. He doesn’t need the ball in his hands a lot but he’s got the ability to score when needed, showing an excellent mid-range game.

He’s built in the Kawhi Leonard mold (although that’s a lofty comparison to make) and he could be a guy who gets drafted a lot lower than he should and the payoff for whichever team drafts him could be big, a few years down the road.
