Does Brenton Williams have a shot at the NBA?
 
I know he isn't flashy, or prototypical, but he is the number 1 free throw shooter in America. Does he get a shot? Anyway he can get it?

He will make a fine living playing in Europe and Asia. He's good but think about Downey and Powell who I think were better and neither made it out of summer and the D League. Both though are millionaires from playing over seas.

Imo, no. His release while quick is too low.

Re: Does Brenton Williams have a shot at the NBA?
 
No, he won't make it in the NBA. If he were to try, he would have to play the point, but his ballhandling skills aren't good enough to play point in the NBA. He's too short to be a shooting guard. He would get posted up all the time by bigger 2 guards and like ccured stated, his shot release is too low for the defenders he would face. Would be really difficult for him to get shots off unless he was completely wide open.

With his high accuracy in shooting, he can go to Europe and have a long, successful career over there. I know it's not the money like the NBA offers, but salaries in the better leagues over there are nothing to scoff at.

No.

Although no one saw Renaldo Balkman getting drafted in the first round.

Or drafted at all.

Now that was a real head scratcher.

If a team wants to hire a guy to just shoot free throws then yes but that doesn't happen. If Downey couldn't make a team then Brenton won't.

No. Too small and not good enough at other things besides shooting

No, no shot at all. He may have a shot in Europe, maybe Southern Europe or the Israeli league, but I'm not even sure about that quite honestly.

Re: Does Brenton Williams have a shot at the NBA?
 
like mentioned already, too small, not a good enough handle, doesnt have the pg skills. even if he had the pg skills hes so slight that it would be almost too hard as is. i dont think he'll end up in europe but rather a middle eastern, asian, or some other league. hes still probably going to need to become better with the ball and be the kind of passer you need a 5'9 guy to be if hes going to have a long career if he desires.

No, 5'11" shooting guards are a rarity in the NBA.

To small, to small, to small blah blah...

Thats horse crap. If the kid puts in the work and improves he will get a shot. He had to good of a season on a bad team to not atleast get a few tryout and summer camp tryouts.

Re: Does Brenton Williams have a shot at the NBA?
 
No. Not a chance in hell. To go to the NBA you have to be a top player in the conference and he is no where near that. How is he, at 5'11 supposed to guard a Paul George or James Harden? Love the kid but he will not be in the NBA.

Nah. Sindarius and Notice have chances though if they keep progressing.
