    Im pretty certain he is. He's very aggressive as a cutter and is a good open 3pt shooter. The question to me is if he can expand his ability to attack off the dribble. He's pretty comparable to Terence Ross coming out of college. Nearly the exact same build and athletic ability. I think Cassius is more aggressive around the rim and has more natural strength at the same size.

    The ****** ting about him is that he's an old Freshman. Will turn 21 in August. Compare that to a guy like Chris Smith who will turn 21 in December and just finished his Junior year. Smith isnt the freak athlete, but he has more size.

    Patrick Williams is probably my favorite prospect of anyone who has potential to fall to the Jazz....he has a chance to be very good

    Is this the real Tony Jones?

    I kind of agreed with this for a while. I thought Williams showed some combo-forward ability similar to Deandre Hunter during Hunter's freshman year at Virginia. I also thought that Williams' athleticism and impact defensively gave him potential to be like Jimmy Butler if he developed more ball skills. The problem is, I'm not quite seeing much ability to play on the ball, just due to mediocre feel for the game and inability to change directions.

    You're not buying in on Bolmaro?

    The more I look into this draft, the more it seems strong for the Jazz. A lot of athletic wings and upperclassmen PG's.

    The writing style sounds similar. Hard to tell. Read his article in The Athletic and see if he's gushing about Patrick Williams.

    That might be enough for me. He's only 19, and I'm assuming he can add strength and improve his shooting with solid coaching. He's also pretty committed on defense.

    Just as an aside, Paul Reed is also only 20 having just finished his junior year. I was surprised by that.

    No, but you can tell he doesn’t have touch. Not awful but will never be a legit shooter.

    Williams is a two-way player. He's tough. You think he'd get ahead of Brantley in the Jazz's rotation?

    This was my draft Big Board for the Jazz in the 1st round...

    1 Anthony Edwards
    2 James Wiseman
    3 Deni Avdija
    4 Obi Toppin
    5 Killian Hayes

    6 Isaac Okoro
    7 Lamelo Ball
    8 RJ Hampton
    9 Cole Anthony
    10 Onyeka Okongwu

    11 Tyrese Halliburton
    12 Jaden McDaniels
    13 Devin Vassell
    14 Leandro Bolmaro
    15 Theo Maledon

    All these guys have the ability to change who the Jazz are. Then the next 5 guys would probably be:

    16 Aaron Nesmith
    17 Jahim’us Ramsey
    18 Jalen Smith
    19 Tyrese Maxey
    20 Saddiq Bey/Patrick Williams

    He's a different player than Brantley. I think he can develop into a really nice two way small forward, especially if he reaches his upside as a shooter
     
    Saint Cy of JFC and Catchall like this.

    Do you know if the players are going to be independently measured by the league, in lieu of there being a Combine?

    probably not. Everything has to be done virtually, as long as we are in hiatus

    Okay, interesting. Thanks.

    Do check out Leandro Bolmaro... Would love to hear your take.

    Thanks my man, I'm on it....I'm a big Aaron Nesmith fan as well. Best volume shooter in the draft. Reminds me of Buddy Hield

    I can see that. Buddy Hield with a touch of Caris Levert at Michigan maybe... Looks like the best shooter in the draft. Thanks for chatting.

    Definitely no Levert in there.

    According to his Wiki Pat Williams is only 18 and will turn 19 in August, so super young. Possibly the youngest player in the NBA when he gets drafted (if he stays in).
