The second of two former Tennessee standouts on this list had himself an impressive NBA Draft Combine showing that spoke volumes about his potential in the NBA. Former junior Tennessee forward Grant Williams didn’t have to show up in this combine in the first place, but he did and shot well along with posting one of the leaner frames among all at his positioned that measured in.

A lot of concerns could arise about what Williams brings to the table through the 2019 NBA Draft since he is one of the older prospects in this class. He played three seasons at Tennessee, just like Bone did. Yet, the trio of prospects coming out of the Tennessee basketball program and played for Barnes that were present at this combine could be gem finds in the second round of this draft.

Williams had some of the better physical measurements in this draft class among all the forwards. He will either play at the three or the four in the NBA, depending on where he lands. If the Chicago Bulls wanted to run a more modern style NBA rotation, Williams would be the ideal four in a small-ball lineup.

Williams showed that his physical tools, speed, and shooting abilities could help him thrive on both ends of the floor as a key bench piece. No one should expect Williams to rise to the occasion as an every-night starter right away, but he could be a core contributor off the bench for years to come.
