Williams was such a good shooter in college, where is his shot? If he needs 20 jacks to make 7 its not worth it. He also needs to get to the line. I'd like to think he is a 20pt/10rb guy but I dont see it. Here hoping for the best.

The young man can be a beast; go for it, and do your best!

D Will can succeed if he takes the good solid mid range shot. If he continues to attack the rim with weak fall away shots, he will most likely fail. Goes without saying, he also needs to play energetic defense.

Pek's success has supplanted alot of inside shoots for Love, AK47 and Williams. Williams success in the last quarter occurred because Pek and Love were not on the floor, which means that the Wolves can't make a number 3 out of a number 4.

Great! Give Williams the playing time to develop, and trade Kevin "I Love" Me, aka Kevin McFrail. Williams will be a better all-around team player. McFrail would look good in Cleveland.

best case scenario williams explodes and we can trade love for a big time shooting guard to play next to rubio in the back court to balance out the roster.its easy to find good power forwards but to find really good guards is not as easy....

Why do you want to trade Love? He returned too early from the first injury. He was shooting just 34% because his hand was not fully healed. Give him the time and he will be back playing like an all-star and we can make a charge to get in the play-offs. With Love, a fully recovered Rubio and a fully recovered Buddinger we can still be in the play-off picture. Too much panic here.

Play Williams a bunch please!!! Alderman is running the show,and he likes his veterans,we all get that in the interview above.This kid is a little different then most power forwards,instill a little confidece in him and he might take off,letting him sit is not the answer,but he needs to also respond also to the chance.
