2020 Fantasy Outlook
Many didn't expect Williams going No. 4 in the draft, but nevertheless, he will now join a young and rebuilding Chicago squad. Williams has tremendous upside despite his mediocre averages with Florida State last season. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward averaged 9.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks while shooting 45.9 percent from the floor and 83.8 percent at the charity stripe with the Seminoles. Assuming Otto Porter remains the starting small forward and Lauri Markkanen the power forward, Williams will presumably come in off the bench and battle for minutes with veteran Thaddeus Young. As a rookie, we shouldn't expect Williams to be a great fantasy contributor, limiting his fantasy relevance exclusively to deep formats. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Williams was born Aug. 26, 2001 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the son of Janie and Eddie Williams. He has one older brother, Kobie, and both of his parents played basketball at Johnson C. Smith University. One of Williams' first jobs was delivering flowers for his mom's shop. Williams attended West Charlotte High School, where he was a four-year starter. During his junior season, he averaged 20.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.8 steals and was rated a consensus top-50 prospect in his class. He committed to playing college basketball at Florida State before his senior year of high school. As a senior, he averaged 22.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.8 blocks and led the team to the 4A State Championship game. Williams also played in the Jordan Brand Classic. During his first season at Florida State (2019-20), he was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team and was also named the Sixth Man of the Year. Williams studied Sport Management at FSU. After his freshman season, Williams declared for the NBA Draft.

College/International Summary

Williams came off the bench for all 29 games he appeared in during his first and only season with Florida State, but his raw potential was evident as he shot up draft boards in the offseason. Despite only averaging 22.5 minutes per contest, the 6-foot-8 power forward scored 9.2 points per game, including one three-pointer made per contest. He came on strongest in the last month of the season, putting up 11.5 points and 5.5 rebounds over the team's last 10 games. Williams was also a more-than-capable defender, averaging a steal and a blocked shot per contest. He was 17th in the ACC in defensive rating and fifth in the conference in block rate. When it was all said and done, Williams made the 2019-20 ACC All-Freshman team and was awarded ACC Sixth Man of the Year honors. There wasn't an NCAA Tournament in 2020, but Florida State finished the year ranked No. 4 in the country in the final AP poll and would have been firmly in contention for a No. 1 seed.

Scores career-high 24 points
FChicago Bulls
May 15, 2021
Williams accumulated 24 points (9-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 32 minutes during Saturday's 105-91 loss to the Nets.
The 19-year-old went from totaling just 18 points over his last three games to score 24 points on 14 attempts. Before Saturday's game, Williams was averaging 6.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 22.7 minutes, so his career-high output in points was an encouraging sign from a developmental standpoint. The rookie will look to make it two impressive scoring performances in a row Sunday at home against the Bucks.

Past Season Summaries

Williams, a first-round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, appeared in 71 of the Bulls' 72 games during the 2020-21 season and started in each one of his appearances. The former Florida State standout endured a few bumps on the road as he got settled to the NBA game, but he still found a way to score in double digits in 32 of his appearances, highlighted by a season-high 24 points against the Brooklyn Nets on May 15. Williams grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds against the San Antonio Spurs on March 17 -- he also added 10 points in that contest, and that was one of the three double-doubles he produced during the regular season. Williams had three games with at least 10 boards, and other season-high marks for him included four assists (four times), four steals (twice) and three blocks (twice). One of Williams' best all-around performances in the season was the game against the Orlando Magic on April 14, in which he produced nine points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals. The rookie ended his first year in The Association averaging 9.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks across 27.9 minutes per game. He also shot 48.3 percent from the floor, 39.1 percent from three-point range and 72.8 percent from the free-throw line.
