I really think tyreke evans + terrence williams are way too low on this site's mock draft. They're both extremely athletic + talented SGs with a high bball IQ. I realize how many great PG prospects there are in the draft, which may be taking up spots, but I still think evans + williams should be lottery picks. If they do actually fall in the 15-20s, whoever drafts them is getting a steal.
tyreke evans is not extremely athletic. for an NBA shooting guard he's probably average to below athletically.
Williams is definitely more athletic than evans, but I'd have to disagree as far as him being below average athletically for SGs in the NBA. He may not have the most amazing vertical, but his combination of strength and speed is impressive. I also think evans' experience playing some PG at memphis will help him adapt to the NBA quicker than some other players would.
T-Will might be the top athlete in the draft besides Griffin and maybe Derozan as well. T-Will is a proven player who played all 4 years at Louisville and really improved under Rick Pitino. I think WIlliams has the chance to be a real steal as I see him as a potential big time shooting guard in the NBA in a few years. He does it all.
I dont really care all that much for Evans, he is talented as an offensive player though. Terrence Williams is a pure talent though, he reminds me of Andre Iguodala (an elite athlete with great overall talent, but wont get over 30 points alot). He is a jack of all trades type guy. I think he will be an all star though
i love williams, but i dont think he's all star caliber. there's a reason he's not projected to be a lottery pick. he's no iguodala. maybe diet iguodala. i'm telling you, he's gonna be just like Ronnie Brewer. mark it down!
i'm telling you Antonio. Evans is average at best athletically for an NBA sg. its the most athletic position in the NBA with the likes of Kobe, Wade, Carter, etc. i'm not saying he's a bad athlete, but he's far from explosive. the point guard experience will benefit him, like you said.
I have not kept up with Evans but I don't see why he can't at least put up up number like OJ did offensively.
He isnt close to the shooter that Mayo is
I actually like Evans more than T-Will. I will agree that he improved a lot under Pitino but he still doesn't use his elite athleticism like he should. He is a good enough shooter but at the next level he's not going to get those looks. He is almost the definition of a bust. A person who never matches talent with execution. He has a great skill set but I don't know if he'll put it together at the next level.
Terrence Williams reminds me of of a smaller version of Iggy. I dont like Tyreke Evans game and I dont think he can play PG in the NBA which means he would have to play SG. Im curious to see how he plays off the ball....
Williams = Poor Mans LeBron James
Evans = Stephen Jackson (minus the guns)
