Articles about Eric Williams

October 6, 2010

Williams graduated from Wake Forest in 2006, and has had several NBA looks since. This is his first NBA contract, however. He has spent his entire career to date in Italy, and averaged 13.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 26 minutes per game for Scavolini Pesaro last season. Williams is a bit old boy - about 280lbs, standing only 6'9 - and is exclusively a post player. He rebounds well, has touch and footwork around the basket, but he does nothing away from it, and won't defend the perimeter. At 6'9, he's also a bit small for the NBA, despite his girth, and he also turns it over a lot. A lot. How much is a lot? 3.1 times per game last year, in only 26 minutes. Hard to be an offensive focal point when you're shooting 53% from the line and turning it over like that.
