Shelden Williams Has A Promise In Top-5?

Shelden Williams Has A Promise In Top-5?

Postby JSM on Sun Jun 11, 2006 8:24 pm

Philadelphia Inquirer: Sources said that Williams has pulled out of scheduled workouts with teams in the second half of the top 10 - including Minnesota, which picks sixth - indicating that a team in the top five has made a commitment to Williams that it will take him.

Who would be dumb enough to take him with a first 5 pick? No doubt, he will be a solid NBA player, but he's been playing horribly in workouts. If a top 5 team is interested in him, they could probably trade for a 13...14 pick and still be able to get him.

its just a hunch from his college days, but i honestly think he'll end up one of the better players out of this draft class a few years down the line.

i know what you guys are saying though...where he stands right now...top 5 just seems a little high.

Toronto: Doubt It. They could have ANYONE, why him.
Chicago: Same As Tor.
Charlotte: Said tobe all over Roy and Morrison
Portland: They need size, might feel all the other bigs will already be gone
Atlanta: Same as Atl but word is that they want Marcus Williams

The scary thing is the Hawks reportedly really like Shelden and there were rumors they might trade down to take him. If they promised him a top 5 pick, I'll shoot Knight.

well they need a PG and a PF so Sheldon would make perfect sense...
they don´t need swingmen. They can always trade a talented swing player for a PG. Or they work on a sign and trade for Harrington. There is no point guard worth the 5th pick, so that pick would make sense. They can´t use Roy, Gay, Morrison and all the top SFs, so they might just go with Sheldon Williams...

I tought Hawks will just draft best player available and I think they should do it instead of making promises.

It is probaly the Hawks. They need a PF BADLY. I wouldn't be shocked if t hey trade up to get the 2nd pick in the draft.
Strikemode14 is the greatest.

why would anybody promise shelden williams a top 5 spot? what is the point of it? it doesn't really do any good. it's not like he needs a promise in order to stay in the draft...he was already a senior.
usually the point of making promises like that is to make sure that he stays available to you.
