Patrick Williams, Chicago Bulls
After seeing steps of progression through the first three seasons of his career with the Chicago Bulls, there was a belief and expectation that Patrick Williams was going to have somewhat of a coming-out party during his fourth season in the NBA. The hope was that he could emerge as a worthy supporting contributor next to DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine. Through the first 11 games of the season, it doesn’t appear as if that’s going to be the case for Williams.
Williams is averaging just five points and three rebounds on 31 percent shooting from the field and 23 percent shooting from 3-point range. It’s been a start to forget for Williams and considering he can test restricted free agency after this season, this has become a far from ideal situation for the Bulls.
With the Bulls facing a bit of a crossroads at the moment, there’s a chance that Williams may be better off getting a fresh start. Williams is a talented player but simply hasn’t developed as Chicago thought he would with the team.
