Michael Carter Williams NBA Scouting Report

NBA Draft Prospect Michael Carter Williams

6-5 - Point Guard - Syracuse

A unique prospect who excels at distributing the ball and controlling the flow of the offense. His size sets him apart from other point guards and allows him to see over defenders and find teammates.

Pros

Carter Williams has great court vision and a natural feel for putting the ball in the right place at the right time. Gets past the defender well and keeps his head up, looking to pass first.

Has great height for a point guard and long arms. Good first step and can really explode into the lane and get to the rim. Has a nice mid range game and soft touch. Still developing and has a lot of upside potential.

Cons

Not a very good shooter from the perimeter and has a lot of work to become a threat from outside. Lacks strength at this point. Must improve as an on the ball defender.

Projection: Top 15 Pick in the 2013 NBA Draft
