Patrick Williams - SF - Florida State

Height: 6'7" Weight: 215

Two way player with defensive versatility...and all the hallmarks of a draft sleeper was originally a 6'0" point guard in junior high school but grew into a 6'7 wing, still very young to be entering the draft as he won't turn 19 till almost September.

Has great shooting form, models his game on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard and it shows. Great family pedigree as both his parents played college basketball as does his two brothers.

Will take time to improve but could be a great talent with hard work.

There's definitely a bit of OG Anunoby there. He's a bit less explosive, but I like his shooting form a bit more.

Good sleeper. Raw and will need development, but could be a starting two-way, versatile wing.

I like his game, I also agree that he's a sleeper, but looks extremely raw, reminds me of PG-13/LeVert mix. Like his shooting form, listed as 6'8/6'9 on some draft websites.

Yes I like that comp, I think if he falls within range of that Memphis pick, I’m sure he’ll be an Ainge target.

TP for pointing this guy out.  I have just read up on him.  He sounds like a Stevens guy with his defensive switching ability.

Here’s what Sam Vencenie wrote about him.

"[Williams'] athleticism is readily apparent every time he's out on the floor, and he makes an impact on defense and as a rebounder. He's active and energetic, and regularly makes the kind of 'wow' flash plays that executives look for. And yet, he's playing an extremely limited role, to the point that it's tough to tell where exactly his ball skills and offensive feel for the game currently sit. And at 6'8" with a 7'-plus wingspan, there is a lot of positional size for him to be a useful combo forward at some point."

If he’s really 6’8” with a 7’ plus wingspan, he might be able to play some small ball center.


Here’s another good article about him.

“The defensive side of the ball is where Williams is likely to have the most impact. He’s very likely the second or third-best perimeter defender prospect in the draft behind Isaac Okoro and Vassell. “

elijah hughes for me

Could be available at 30

has good size/height for a SG.  Really nice shooting stroke. Can handle the ball and also has a nice dribble stop and pop

Not super quick or athletic but smooth athlete like Evan Turner (younger days).  Wingspan is on the average side. Older prospect

But he is one of the top shooters of this draft imo
