Projected Draft Range: Top 5
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Solid scorer off the dribble
Decent shooter, especially from mid-range
Very good rebounder
Solid defender that can get steals and blocks
Very good athlete
Unselfish to a fault
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can have lapses defensively
Needs to add strength
Ziaire Williams is a very athletic, skilled player that possesses a strong blend of athleticism, versatility, and all-around skills. He is a high-flyer that can throw down thunderous dunks around the basket, and he also can pull up to knock down a flurry of jumpers, especially from mid-range.
He also is an unselfish player that can find teammates on the move, and he is a rangy defender that can play shut down defense. While he has shown an improved outside shot, he will need to continue to be more consistent in making three-point shots from beyond the arc. Williams is a terrific prospect, and if things go as expected, he could be a likely top 5 pick in the 2021 draft.
