From the web-site, SB Nation.

"One of the big mysteries of last year was why Jordan Williams, who was a productive 14.5 PER backup big for the Nets until he was traded to Atlanta as part of the Joe Johnson trade, was never able to find a home after being waived in the offseason.

Although he is undersized for the five at 6'9'' and not particularly athletic, Williams competes well, is active on the boards, and is still only 22.

In that line, he was making strides towards developing a midrange shot up to the 2012 draft, although he never got the opportunity to use it in more than a very limited sample size.

Weirdly, Williams is probably a better prospect than the guy that will be the Laker starting summer league center in Robert Sacre and has a far superior NBA track record.

We shouldn't discount Sacre's ability to improve or his possible chemistry value to the team, but don't be surprised if Williams outproduces Sacre in any given game."
