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.

Bulls-Raptors postponed
FChicago Bulls
February 28, 2021
Williams and the Bulls won't play the Raptors on Sunday since the game was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Toronto doesn't have the minimum eight players available due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, leading to the postponement. The Bulls don't currently have any COVID-19 issues within the team, so they should face the Nuggets on Monday as scheduled.
