Williams, who played four seasons at the University at Buffalo, declared for the 2022 draft but went undrafted. He joined the Salt Lake City Stars, the Utah Jazz’s G League affiliate, where he averaged 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 32 regular-season games, shooting 52.3% from the field (10.2 attempts), 41.7% from three (4.1 attempts) and 84.8% from the free throw line (1.4 attempts).

After finishing the G-League, Williams signed a contract for the remainder of the season with the Portland Trailblazers in April. He made his NBA debut the next day, scoring seven points against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In four more games, Williams averaged 10.6 points, three rebounds and two assists on 61.5% shooting from the field and 37.5% from three-point range while playing an average of 25.4 minutes.

With solid size at 6-foot-6 (198 cm) and 207 pounds (94 kg), Williams is an excellent defensive wing resource with a long wingspan of 7-foot-1 (216 cm). He has a decent shooting touch and uses his long stride to finish, utilizing his high IQ to create off-ball movement and pass well under the basket.

However, he relies heavily on his left hand, has a slow shot release, and is not a very good dribbler. He also has a fairly high turnover rate, and his age at 24 is his biggest limitation.

Meanwhile, the Rockets added Williams to their camp roster, bringing their total to 17 players.

Williams will have to put forth a better effort than most in training camp to earn a spot on the 15-man roster. If he impresses, he may be able to earn a two-way contract spot that is currently vacant.
