Chad Ford Heard Good Things About D-Leaguer Latavious Williams
I've talked to a number of NBA people who were at the workouts and the response hasn't been really hot or cold on anyone. But here are a few tidbits of interest.
D-Leaguer Latavious Williams may have made the biggest impression. Williams skipped college and went straight to the NBDL last year. His numbers weren't awesome, but the scouts who saw him play there thought he had a chance at making the NBA. Williams wasn't invited to Chicago for the draft combine, so this was his first chance to really show he belonged. The results, while not overwhelming, helped him.
"He's a good athlete and I thought he really went out there and competed," one GM said. "I think he's got a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He's got to be in the mix. Another year or two of development and he could be a player."
These GM's could have learned all of this by reading Ridiculous Upside throughout the season, but whatevz.
