Grant Williams is a name Jazz fans may be familiar with if they’ve done research into names often mentioned with the 23rd pick. Williams projects mostly as a power forward, and potentially a spot small ball center at the NBA level. Williams measured in at 6-foot-7 at the NBA Combine, with a 6-foot-9 wingspan, while weighing 240 pounds.
Williams is projected to be the 23rd pick to the Jazz by ESPN.com and 34th overall by NBAdraft.net. The junior forward averaged just under 19 points per game and 7.5 rebounds in his final season for the Volunteers.
Williams is an undersized, stout forward, who uses his strength and low center of gravity to establish position in the post, showing an adept back to the basket game while also flashing a well developed, soft jump shot that stretches out to the college 3-point line.
