Derrick Williams flops in starting opportunity

Derrick Williams produces vs. former mates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Derrick Williams looks solid in first start for Kings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2013) Newly acquired Kings forward Derrick Williams had a solid debut Friday, as he filled a big role in a 104-98 loss to the Clippers.

Williams, who was acquired via trade days ago from the Timberwolves, played a season-high 32 minutes as the starting small forward. He didn't shoot the ball well, but still managed 12 points on 6 of 13 shooting from the field.  He added six rebounds and four assists, while turning the ball over just once.

Williams is obviously going to see a bigger role with the Kings than he had in Minnesota, where he averaged just 14.7 minutes per game and didn't top 30 once.  


Derrick Williams might remain out of position following trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) The Derrick Williams trade finally happened -- assuming Luc Richard Mbah a Moute can get through a physical Tuesday. We have been waiting for the former No. 2 pick to get out of Kevin Love's shadows and get fulltime rune as a power forward. Unfortunately, things might not be changing all that much as he joins the Kings. 

Williams has gamely tried to turn himself into a small forward, but his lack of quickness and outside shooting has doomed him. NBA teams really cannot survivie with a 29.8 percent three-point shooter logging heavy minutes on the perimeter unless they bring elite skills otherwise. Williams seems like a killer stretch power forward where his shooting plays up and his athleticism can take advantage of slower big men, but the Kings' roster might force him into playing more small forward than is best for his development.

Following the trade of Mbah a Moute, the Kings are likely to have more minutes available at small forward than power forward, where Jason Thompson and Patrick Patterson combine to play 43.4 minutes per game. That doesn't leave much time for Williams to play his natural position, whereas Mbah a Moute's departure leaves just the struggling John Salmons and Travis Outlaw available at the three.

We should still be excited to see what Williams' potential can turn into if given a full-time role, even if it remains a less-than ideal one. Given his pedigree, Williams could very easily become a Fantasy commodity even with these concerns. In 71 starts in his career, Williams is averaging 12.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

You might not want to rush out to grab Williams off waivers expecting a surefire starting Fantasy option. But, if you have some dead weight on your roster -- like, say, Jared Dudley, owned in 23 percent of CBSSports.com leagues -- Williams is well worth a flier for a few weeks to see if he breaks out.
