    Elliot Williams: 6-3, 175 lbs, PG, University of Nevada

    Strengths: Point guard with excellent size (6'3) and strength to handle the NBA PG position ... Very quick and athletic player which when combined with his size makes him intriguing ... A lefty with excellent one on one skills and the ability to create baskets off the dribble ... Has a pretty lefty pull up off the dribble ... Gets excellent lift on his shot and has a fluid release ...  First step is extremely fast making him a tough player to stay in front of ... CONTINUE READING>>>

    Weaknesses: His point guard skills are good but not great ... Still must become a better passer and learn to control the tempo and set up teammates in the half court. He is much more adept at creating offense for himself ... Gets a little out of control in transition so will need to work on his decision making there ... CONTINUE READING>>>

    He is not a point guard. He is a 2 guard. That is why his skills as a point guard are weak. Nevada needed a point guard and he got elected. Portland continues to draft 2 guards thinking they can turn them into point guards. The point is the most sophisticated position on a basketball team.  It takes many years to hone that position into one that can compete in the NBA.  Good luck on your tutelage.

    Went with a C, mainly because I haven't seen him play and it really wasn't a position of need. Although, he could have been best player available and that is always the philosophy to take. Other 2nd round players I would have liked to take:

    Hassan Whiteside (#33)- Taken 1 pick before us. I would have gave them #34 and a future 2nd round pick for his rights
    Solomon Alabi (#50)- Who cares if he may bust. Taking a gamble on a 7-1 center in the 2nd round would have been worthwhile, esp with our center position depleted these past few years.

    There were other good players such as Ebanks, Butler, and White, but our other 1st round picks were of that same position and a guy who skyrocketed, Trevor Booker, went in round 1 who would have been a nice fit and pushed Dante for backup 4 minutes.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
