Ziaire Williams is an interesting option for the Indiana Pacers

If the Pacers want to attack the wing and look more towards an upside selection, Ziaire Williams is the perfect prospect. NBC Sports published a recent mock draft with Williams heading to Indiana on draft night in a move that makes a lot of sense.

Williams was one of the nation’s top recruits out of high school but had a bit of a poor season at Stanford. His shot never seemed to get going as he connected on just 29 percent of his threes and 42 percent of his field goals in his lone college season.

His collegiate experience was a major letdown but Williams is still a very intriguing prospect as he heads to the NBA. He is a versatile athlete with positive athleticism that helps him get to the rim with ease. When shots are not falling, Williams will seek out contact and earn his points at the foul line to get things going.

Arguably his biggest weakness right now is not a true weakness because he can fix it. His slim frame makes him somewhat less of a threat when attacking but adding mass will only make him a better player. With his poor season sliding him down to the end of the lottery, the Pacers could land a stud at a pretty low cost.
