Over at The Register Citizen, Justin DeFeo (of our site) wrote a piece on local Nets fans expectations of rookie Jordan Williams. In it, Justin cites Williams’ rebounding skills as a huge asset to the team and says that the team’s shortcomings in the frontcourt could provide “J-Will” with some solid playing time next season. He also says that Nets fans should exhibit patient with Williams; while his rebounding is stellar, his game is still very raw.
I’m a fan of the Williams pick, too. The Nets need rebounding presence and lack big bodies who can do dirty work and hustle hard. While I never expect Williams to be a star, I would hope that he could be a starter in the NBA at some point.
