Derrick Williams Making the Leap
Coming into the league in 2011, Derrick Williams was lauded by many as the most NBA-ready player in the draft. The Cavs even had serious discussion about taking Williams with the first overall pick that year. You look at some of his highlights from his days in Arizona and can’t believe his game hasn’t translated as smoothly at the next level. Here he is against Duke in the 2011 Tourney.

The guy is a monster and can stroke it to boot! Surprisingly, Williams hasn’t turned into the player many people thought he would. He has only shot 42.3 percent in his first two seasons and just hasn’t made the impact that seemed imminent coming out of school. While Williams has been a mild disappointment thus far, that is all about to change.
