3. Ziaire Williams
Since being selected with the 10 overall pick back in the 2021 NBA Draft, Ziaire Williams has flashed potential of becoming a go-to primary wing within a rotation, though has failed to find a way to showcase it on a consistent basis.
Now in year three, these problems are still ever-present, and, with the emergence of both Vince Williams Jr. and, to a lesser extent, GG Jackson, the former Stanford standout has slowly but surely seen his chances of becoming their starting small forward of the forward plummet to near zero.
With this in mind, it may be wise for the Grizzlies to now try and sell high on his label of being a recent lottery selection still in his early 20s, and, looking at the state of the league, there are bound to be a few takers who would be willing to bet on his upside.
Measuring in at 6-foot-9 with a 6-foot-10 wingspan, Williams has the natural build of being a defensive monster while his athleticism and smooth shooting form give him a realistic chance of developing into a sound 3-and-D role player if brought into the right setting.
Though he may not be a highly sought-after commodity among playoff hopefuls, for rebuilding squads like the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, and Portland Trail Blazers, he could be viewed as a raw talent well worth taking a risk on.
