Profile

Richie Williams is a pure PG and plays the position exactly how it is supposed to be played…A true dream for coaches and teammates to have him running their unit…Uses his quickness, acceleration, and dribbling ability to get to where he wants on the court…Very shifty in his movements…Has excellent dribble moves and hesitation moves…A true magician with the ball in his hands…Does a great job penetrating the lane and finishing with all types of crafty and tough finishes…Drops the ball off for easy finishes for big man teammates…Really excels in the PnR where he is a nightmare to have to defend…Shooting ability is really impressive as he has ideal form and can connect from all over the court…Stops on a dime to nail shots…An absolutely fantastic passer who always gets teammates involved…A blur in transition…Very difficult to guard with his experience, savvy, shooting, and passing ability...Defensively, he is extremely pesky as he generates plenty of turnovers with his instincts and speed…Has super quick hands to poke the ball loose…Jumps passing lanes and hounds opponents to make life difficult…Never takes plays off and coaches absolutely love his leadership and toughness…Any team looking for a tough, proven, and talented PG will welcome a player like Richie Williams to lead their squad…
