Nigel Williams-Goss is a tall, skilled point guard that transferred from Washington, and he is an offensively sound playmaker that has made a significant impact right away at Gonzaga.
He can run the team effectively, as he generally makes good decisions with the ball in his hands. Williams-Goss also can shoot and score the basketball, as he can make plenty of spot-up threes off the catch, and he has NBA range.
On the other hand, he is not an explosive athlete, as his lack of elite athleticism may put a ceiling on his upside as a player for the next level. While he shot the ball well this year, his shooting percentages have not always been great throughout his career.
Right now, Nigel Williams-Goss may project to be a second round pick, as his draft stock may not be very high at the moment. But if he continues to play well this season, he could play his way into the NBA, and potentially carve out a long career in the league.
