Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays

Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder
Decent defender
Good athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can be reluctant to take threes

Summary:

Keith Williams is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.  He is a rangy defender that can make numerous plays on the ball, and he has the physical tools to develop into being a solid defender at the NBA level.  On offense, he thrives at scoring in transition, and he can throw down some highlight-reel worthy dunks on the break.  He will need to improve his jump shot and show that he can consistently create his own shot to score the basketball.  Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
