Is Deron Williams back to being ‘D-Will’?; a former All-Star & 2x Olympic Gold Medalist, Williams remains a steady PG; acquired by CLE via buyout (Feb. ’17)smart PnR commander, hits shooters on pop backs, can loft passes up to bigs after a high screen; shoots a lot of midrangers & threes (can erupt from beyond the arc) off screens but Williams smashes through guys in the post as well; a rare post-up ‘power guard’ w/ shake: Deron can make a play w/ a live ball (rock you back & forth, launch a fadeaway or drive for a floater) or get down on the box; poor conditioning, lack of motivation? & poor shot selection have all popped up during Deron’s career; counted open to make plays in Coach Lue’s second unit
