Williams Top Five in Rookie Stats

New, comment

Sean Williams was taken 17th in the draft, but after two weeks in the NBA, the BC product is doing better than most taken above him. He is now the league's top shooter, at 65.7%, its seventh best shot blocker at 2.4 per game, and first in blocks per 48 minutes at 6.0. Among rookies, he is first in blocks, fourth in both scoring (9.6 ppg) and rebounding (4.9 rpg) . The Nets knew the rewards but also the risks of taking Williams.
