#4 – Jordan Williams
Jordan Williams has just about the size - listed as 6’9” and 250 (to 260) pounds - and athleticism to play Center in the NBA. Since he does not possess great offensive polish, though he scored double digits in college, the areas in which he surpassed collegiate expectations will not play out in the NBA.
We expect his production to go down by nearly 50 percent. Though he does have strength and youthfulness on his side, the nearly 17 points and 12 rebounds this past season will not translate. Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!
Out of 138 players:
· Jordan Williams is a first-round pick in only one of the 4 metrics, the one that measures overall production. We don’t foresee him having the opportunity to log enough minutes and/or possessions to achieve those numbers.
· We project him to be picked in the second round - an average of his defense and skill-set -– 47 or so.
· Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
