Samuell Williamson is an athletic, skilled swingman that can shoot and pass the basketball. He is an old-school type of player that likes to take and make mid-range jump shots, and he also is a fairly good position defender that will actively challenge shots. He lacks elite foot speed, and he will need to take far more jump shots from long range, but Williamson may have the tools to end up being an effective role player in the NBA.
