I like Williams and I think he's the most immediately NBA-ready college player. However, he will struggle like Beasley (and he's not close to as talented as Beasley) who is too small to play the four but not quick enough to guard NBA threes.
Tweener? He's a 6'8" 235lbs SF. And he's a great shooter, something this team lacks. He's not a great defender, which is why i'd rather get Irving. But in this draft class, he's the 2nd best player going in. If we get a top 2 pick we'll get one of the two.
