Derrick Williams – Min – sf/pf
The #2 overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft this season, Williams is an extremely talented forward who possesses excellent rebounding ability, as well as excellent scoring ability in the paint to go along with a solid mid-range jump shot. While there is little doubt that Williams is NBA ready as a rookie this season, he unfortunately will not be handed a golden opportunity for playing time in Minnesota to begin the 2011-2012 season. With Kevin Love and Michael Beasley already taking up the majority of the playing time at both forward spots in the Timberwolves lineup, Williams may be limited to only 20 minutes played per game to begin the season. However if more minutes eventually become available, Williams could easily put up stats worthy of being named the rookie of the year.
