PHXPower Forward: 6’8, 260 lbs; 3rd year, UCSB

NBA Role: bruiser • UnderDOG

UCSB’s Alan Williams: an ‘undersized/oversized’ four man who gets after it on the inside and pounds the boards; had a 20-20 game (way back) in 2015 Summer League – sure, “it’s only Summer League” applies but Williams showcased some intensity and parlayed it into a roster spot in PHX; can’t jump over a phone book (he’s actually pretty quick for his size, however) but is tremendously strong & has a decent touch – Williams is crafty around the rim; Sauce isn’t what you’d traditionally label a shooter but he can stretch the floor justtt a little bit; needs to slide better on D, give up his body for charges (not a shot-blocker at 6’8); excellent teammate – goes nutty whenever teammates make a play – forever hype, features some of the league’s best celebrations; overlooked his entire basketball career – PHX is a nice opportunity to earn big minutes – Suns need Williams’s toughness and board work
