NBA Comparison: Kenrich Williams

Strengths: A smooth and lengthy Aussie off-ball guard who can put the ball on the deck and eventually expand his range and add consistently on the perimeter … Great size and wingspan at 6’8 with a 6’10 wingspan … Plays with his head up and showcases a decent mix of ball-handling and accurate passing for a player his size … Always plays ready to catch the ball and releases quickly with a three or drives with a quick burst due to his readiness and explosion off two feet … Can elevate above the rim for driving dunks … Decent athlete who can drive to both sides and finish with great body control around defenders … Plays with a swagger and confidence to raise energy levels of his teammates … Decent slashing package to create space and finish around the rim … Can lead the break in transition and go coast to coast for scores

Weaknesses: Shooting motion can be a little slow and funky and his efficiency from beyond the arc wasn’t great at just 25% this past season on 2.5 attempts per game … Didn’t play against high-level competition and could be a stash pick as he raises his game to the level that could play in the pros … Will turn 21 in September, so a quick improvement will need to happen to make this pick worth it … Didn’t produce many steals or blocks despite his positional size and mobility … Opposing teams were willing to surrender 3-point jumpers … Often relies on his ability to make tough, contested shots in the lane, which won’t fly against lengthier rim protectors and elite defenders in the NBA

Notes: Measured: 6’6.5” barefoot, 6’8.0” in shoes, 8’9.0” standing reach, 199.4 lbs, 6’10.0” wingspan at the 2022 NBA G-League Elite Camp … 20-year-old NBL shooting guard who stands at 6’8 with a 6’10 wingspan … Played for the Perth Wildcats in the NBL … Selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft …
