Williams truly emerged last season after coach Earl Watson decided to bench most of the veteran players – Tyson Chandler for example – after the All-Star break. Prior to the break, Williams saw just a hair over seven minutes per game and, understandably, failed to produce significant numbers. However, after the festivities concluded, the 6-foot-8 center posted an impressive 11.4 points and 9.1 rebounds across 22.6 minutes per game, thriving as a sparkplug off the bench despite being undersized at the position. While Williams has demonstrated that he’s capable of producing big numbers in limited action, the fact remains that the Suns are dealing with a bit of a logjam at center with him, Alex Len and Tyson Chandler all looking to fight for playing time. For that reason, unless the Suns’ coaching staff comes out and guarantees Williams some sort of significant workload, he’s a very risky player to target for the upcoming in the vast majority of Fantasy formats. That’s not to say he doesn’t have value as a late-round flier in deeper formats, however, as he undoubtedly made his case during the 2016-17 campaign to usurp both Chandler’s and Len’s playing time.

  2. Alan Williams 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Williams was one of the feel-good stories during the Suns’ 23-59 season, as the native Phoenician, who went undrafted out UC Santa Barbara in 2015, parlayed a successful stint in the Chinese Basketball Association into a 10-day contract with his hometown team in March. When the Suns’ frontcourt was banged up down the stretch, Williams received a de facto audition for the 2016-17 campaign, appearing in 10 games and averaging 2.9 points and 3.8 rebounds over 6.8 minutes per game. He carried that excellent per-minute production over to the summer, when he earned First-Team All-NBA Summer League honors after averaging a double-double (11.8 points, 11.2 rebounds per game) across six contests with the Suns’ entry in the Las Vegas Summer League. Though Williams’ contract isn’t guaranteed for the upcoming season, Suns GM Ryan McDonough intimated that the 6-foot-8 center would maintain his roster spot following his strong showing late in 2015-16 and in summer league. Despite being undersized for his position, Williams’ relentless effort on the glass should lock him into the third-string role behind Tyson Chandler and Alex Len.
