    The Ziaire Williams Guide

    This is ZW's biggest weakness. It's not his jump shot. There are a lot of good players who didn't shoot that great from 3 coming into the league, but they are able to finish. ZW can't do either which makes him a huge liability offensively. When you compare his college numbers to some of the other similar prospects in last year's draft this weakness becomes even more glaring. ZW had the lowest 3FG% of the group and second only to Jalen Johnson for the lowest % of his shots that were 3s. He also had the lowest FG% at the rim and the lowest % of his shots at the rim. Not a great combo. His mid range J is about average for the group %-wise but he shot it the most. Why the heck did the FO draft this guy so high? I'll never understand it even if he turns out to be a good player years down the line.

    The front office will be doing a disservice to the team, the fans and to ZW himself if they don't move him to the G League when the G League season begins. He should not play one meaningful minute on the Grizzlies until he learns how to shoot.

    Looking back at the 2021 draft 5 years from now fans will wonder what if we had only drafted Bouknight instead of ZW and sigh with regret.

    SI's Top 100 players for the '21-'22 season

    Both rankings havd KD #1. I think KD is great but I'd take Jokic or Giannis over him, especially if you consider durability.

    I meant that assume ZW will all of a sudden shoot well is like assuming Bane will all of a sudden develop amazing handles.

    NBA coach rankings - TJ #15

    Just look at how much coaches get paid in comparison to players. There is no salary cap for coaches and they get paid like a guy playing 10-15 minutes a game. So that is how NBA management views the worth of a good coach and I see no reason to go against that.

    But what if Bane also develops abilities he doesn't currently have?

    I don't understand what they are trying to accomplish with this trade. Maybe they are planning on trading Tyus and wanted some more guards?
  9. Hypothetical trades are all we have right now. I check NBA rumors every day for something exciting to happen. Don't harsh my buzz man.
  10. Robert Covington, Duncan Robinson and Danny Green all played significant time in the g league. So did Duncan Robinson, Christian Wood and Hassan Whiteside. You can definitely develop players in the G League. Faster too because they can start and play more minutes.
  11. There is zero chance ZW is a good player next season. He belongs in the G League. Where he was drafted or what we did to get him is irrelevant.
  12. They can and should assign Williams to the G League where he can develop into a player worthy of NBA minutes. Same with Aldama. No reason for either to play any minutes on the Grizz while the G League season is ongoing.

    Steven Adams had problems fouling too much when he entered the league too. He's got it under control now so maybe he can share what he learned with JJJ.
