I say we take him
I say we take him
yeah was surprised this wasn't getting more attention... he can shoot the 3 is extremely athletic/explosive
I was really high on him during last year's draft, but I don't think he's worth the #8 pick, which is what I assume Minny would ask for. I've also really soured on 'tweeners', whether it's combo PG-SG or SF-PF. I'm all for roster flexibility, but a lot of the tweeners that seem to get so much hype for their versatility, wind up being decent at multiple positions but excellent at neither (ie: Williams isn't athletic enough for SF, but is too small for PF, unless he plays only short bursts). I don't mind tweeners for the 2nd unit, but I am now leaning towards starters having defined positions with the skillset/attributes to excel at that one spot.
With the exception of experience he is exactly what we need
I'd love Williams for the Raps 2nd unit (ahead of Davis, Amir, JJ and Kleiza for mainly the PF spot), just not at the cost of the #8 pick. I wonder what else Minny might take for him?
Love is their only true PF... I wonder if Amir & #37/2013 1st round pick would be enough? I'd do a deal along those lines, just not one that involves the #8 pick (especially after they traded their 1st round pick to Houston). I just highly doubt that would entice Minny to trade him, especially since they could likely get better offers elsewhere.
I'd do Amir 8/36 and next years 1st for Pekovic and Williams
The Wolves are asking A LOT for him. Toronto has nothing to part with to get him since they are looking for #2 from Charlotte.
Remember last year how valuable he was? Funny how 1 year changes so much for so many draft picks. From coveted to trade bait in a year.
I was high on Williams last year, and I'm still somewhat intrigued by him. But I'm intrigued by the 8th pick more.
If there's an opportunity to obtain Williams without costing us the 8th pick, I'm all for it (future picks plus our second rounders, perhaps?).

remember when williams struggled to score during the rookie/sophmore game
Not Raptors related news. Moved to the NBA thread.
Derrick Williams would cost us major parts and im not sure if its worth it.
