Summary:

Benny Williams is a very athletic, high-motor forward whose versatility may make him an intriguing prospect for the NBA.  He is a good shooter, and he is a high-flyer that can finish plays above the rim.  He is a sound decision-maker that makes good decisions with the ball in his hands and can rack up assists.  He is a solid on-ball defender that has the potential to be able to guard a variety of positions.  He may need to extend his shooting range and ball handling skills, but if he plays well this year, he could end up being a first round pick in the 2022 draft.
