Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
On the short list of great players in Tennessee history, Williams probably belongs on the second echelon, right below the likes of Bernard King, Dale Ellis, Ernie Grunfeld and Allan Houston. Williams was the best player the last two years for the Volunteers as they enjoyed a renaissance, spending more than a month as the No. 1 team this season and reaching two straight SEC Tournament title games.
Williams scored a team-high 18.8 points as a junior, canning 56.5 percent from the field and 81.9 percent at the foul line. He converted 23 straight free throws in a January overtime win at Vanderbilt, the second-best game at the line in NCAA history. Williams finished in the top six in scoring, field goal percentage, free throw percentage and rebounding last year, leaving Knoxville as the two-time SEC Player of the Year.
He did not overwhelm competition at the NBA Scouting Combine in May - particularly at the offensive end -- and appeared to be pressing in the days that followed his official announcement about leaving Tennessee.
ANALYSIS
Williams measured out at just under 6-6 at the combine, which is a red flag for some scouts, given his 240-pound frame and the fact that he isn't exactly the quickest guy on the court. But there will be a place for him on some NBA team, because of his versatile offensive game and 6-11 wingspan that enables him to score against taller defenders with consistency.
The comparisons between P.J. Tucker and Mike Scott look pretty accurate for Williams, although he'll have to refine his touch from the 3-point line. Williams will also struggle if he's matched up with a player of similar size who has a good handle. But his maturity, variety of ways to score the ball and the maturity with which he plays could make him a candidate to play for pay for years.
Projection: Second Round/Free Agent
