Louis Williams Playing Well in Pre-Season

In a recent game against the NBA Champion Boston Celtics, Louis Williams led his team, the Philadelphia 76er's to victory.

Williams came off the bench and promptly scored 27 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the field, and 12 of 13 from the free throw line. That's the production that I was looking forward to when the Dawgs garnered the commitment from Williams.

Williams is fast going to either side and he will challenge big men with his leaping ability. The end result is normally a dunk or a foul, and Williams is a pretty good free throw shooter. The fact that he doesn't fit the typical pass-first point guard proto-type was and is irrelevant. The guy can play.

I had hoped that the Atlanta Hawks would have signed him. I think the Hawks are in pretty good shape with Mike Bibby and Acie Law, but I think Williams is a singular talent.

And just think, he would have been a senior this year.
