Zona's Derrick Williams To Turn Pro

Pac 10 player of the year Derrick Williams has decided to take his talents to the NBA. After dominating during the first few rounds of the NCAA tournament the next D.Will is coming out after his junior season. Williams goes a cool 6'8" with great hops and can shoot the 3. If I was an NBA executive this is the type of player that I would be willing to take number 1 over all because his game has so much upside. If you watched the tournament game vs. Duke he put half that team in a poster with an array of monster dunks while also stepping out and stroking from distance. 6'8" is not huge on the NBA level but with his springs and shooting ability he can be a great shooting forward. The sky is the limit. Williams will be chosen in the top 5 I can guarantee that. From a fantasy perspective...keeper league managers need to take note and grab this guy in the 7-10 round range. He won't get the press that Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving get but if he goes to a team where he can play heavy minutes he will have an immediate impact. I see him as a shorter version of Chris Bosh with a whole lot more aggressiveness finishing at the rim. I am a big believer in what this kid could do and you should be as well.
