SG/SF – 6’5, 220lbs – Born 23rd February 1993
Williams was designated as a returning player to the BayHawks for his second season after spending a full campaign with the team in 2017-18, making the roster initially via the local tryout route. This season, however, he was cut after only ten games, averaging 2.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.4 fouls per game in that time. Williams’s résumé prior to his successful tryout was two years at East Georgia State junior college, a year far down the bench at East Tennessee State, before finishing his college career at Division II Augusta, averaging 13.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. Williams is a powerfully built 6’6 power forward who plays in the post and through the offensive glass, who beat up on less physical and less fast opponents at the Division II level. For the BayHawks, though, with the post no longer as good of an option, he was instead a plethora of missed jump shots and moving screens. It is unlikely he will return next year.
